Specialty Museum Museum
Appreciate toys and their relation to culture at Zurich Toy Museum, where the collection covers these mainstays of childhood from the 19th century to the 1920s. The museum illustrates the development of civilization through toys: dolls whose costumes showcase changing fashions, dollhouses that illustrate different architecture and lifestyles, and an exhibit of cars and trains that tracks the evolution of transportation. Elsewhere in the museum you can pore over old board games and children's books. A visit to Zurich Toy Museum represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Zurich vacation generator to plot your vacation.
