  • It is a toy museum based on a private collection, the mold is not big, a little more than one time can be finished, for people born in the 1970s, there is a childhood memories of the book, when many antique sons and toys collection is not worth. Underground meal, lunch package 18 yuan new, in the love of food, the foredish to the main food are very attentive, but also attached a cup of special ingredients, CP value is very high.

  • So we stumbled on this awesome toy museum today as we are staying around the corner. Husband and I are children of the 50s so wow....we were blown away. Seeing Robbie the Robot, Popeye, Felix the cat,...  more »
  • This had some cool stuff to look at, but didn't feel it was worth what our family paid for entry. Could be done better.  more »

  • I loved this little toy museum! Easily covered since it's small, but it has around 5 floors of vintage toys all collected by one person.
  • Exhibitions are not well organised and there is way too much to look at without much focus or explanations. Might be better to organise perhaps by country or era. Really does look more like a collector’s warehouse. Also, should update for the last 10-20 years worth of toys, so that it can appeal to the younger crowds.
  • fun little spot. there were some school groups taking a tour while we were there. coming from the US there were not many toys i recognized. really cool that a private collector opened their doors to the paying public.
  • A fab place to reconnect with your childhood. It has the amazing collections of toys and not only from all over the world. A must visit.
  • Wonderful collection of old toys to remember the time you were young.
