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.
