Zurich Toy Museum, Zurich

(3.1/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is as you say you are, and the Museum. Do you feel like individuals gathering spaces. Have you ever been to the Toy Museum, even in other countries, but was a disappointment. However, happy Japanese dolls, toys of various countries also exhibited.

  • The elevator to the 5th floor is the thrill ... not do if you are claustrophobic! The museum itself is quite small. Two floors of a few square meters. A place where you can let your imagination on the course ... Who played with dolls or train?
