Overview
More
Nuremberg has been a city of toys since the Middle Ages. With an abundance of extraordinary exhibits from antiquity to the present, Nuremberg's world famous Toy Museum presents the "world in miniature" in 1,400 square meters of space, featuring dolls, shops, tin figures and tin toys, wooden toys and a large model train set (Track S), as well as more recent toys, such as Lego, Barbie, Playmobil, and Matchbox. The imaginatively designed children's area in the attic is staffed with trained educational personnel. Summer attractions include a large outdoor playground and a museum cafe in the secluded inner courtyard. There are audio guides tailored for adults and children to escort you through the museum, and also a droll photographic treasure hunt.

A large collection of toys throughout the ages with audio guides to tell you what you are looking at. The audio guide is worth it as they are mostly old toys so you hear the history behind them. Lots of dolls, dollhouses for girls and...More

Great collection of historic toys with audio guides. Small fee to enter the museum itself with a optional audio guide.

It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but very interesting nonetheless. I suppose I was expecting a 'Legoland' type of experience and it wasn't that at all, although there is a play area on the top floor for young children. I found it quite sombre...More

Any adult who walks through here will find something they had, or wanted. For a toy collector (old or contemporary) it is a must. Very interesting.

Located in the old city of Nuremberg so parking is limited in front of the museum. This is a nice place to visit with friends, family or partners. It brings back some nice memories of toys you used to play with. Some which I had...More
