Buried on the fifth floor of a building is this nice little toy museum, basically someone's private collection of toys (mainly dolls), some going back over 100 years. It's small but nice, and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, which made the experience better. There's...More

The museum was very small. It consists of only 2 rooms. Located on the fifth floor and the elevator was not working. It opens at 2pm which is quite late. That said it does have the exhibitions covering toys from late 1800s.

There is a lot crammed into a small space here that you could see it all in a few minutes, but it's quite interesting to see toys from different time periods that normally wouldn't be on display anywhere else, and is worth a brief visit...More

The Zurich toy museum is a small, but interesting place. Located at the top of an office building, the exhibit is pretty small and cramped but has some interesting pieces. I thought the Migros doll exhibit, the "Swiss Barbie" was interesting, as was the, how...More
