I didn't had any expectations about this museum but I liked it a lot. The story at the beginning was really cute. There are a lot of Steiff soft toys, so look for the details they put into the scenes ;)

Easy to find, just follow the painted paw prints on the pavements. Very reasonable entry price of 10 euros for adults and 8 euros for over 60's (sorry didn't look for children's prices). Plenty of space to leave coats and free lockers to leave bags...More
