Funny kind of collection. Mostly un-identified toys but nicely displayed. Ranges from tin soldiers to puppets. Also lots of cars. Several old trains on top floor and a simple train layout. Could have wanted more explanatory labels - manufacturer - date etc

The most recent museum in Trier, located on the Main Market inside the Steipe. It displays an immense private collection of mechanical toys, tin soldiers, dolls, stuffed animals, toys from the Third Reich, a complete zoo, wind-up and electric trains etc.

We visited on my 10 year old's request. It was fun to see the toys, and marvel at the trains, cars and other cool old toys. It isn't a huge museum, but worth going. It was affordable.

If you like old toys, this place has everything, three floors of toy history with a great expo on Bavarian style stuffed puppets. They have military toys, dolls, fire trucks and cars, train sets, miniature models, tea sets, everything. Kids love it and grown ups...More
