Toys are supposed to be fun and played with. Not in glass cabinets. This is a glorified doll museum. Yawn. Don't bother unless you like to see vintage dolls behind glass. Even the new toys look dusty and old.

I wouldn't pay the 5 CHF to go to this museum, but it is included free with the ZurichCard. Even free you have to be really into toy dolls and trains to enjoy this museum. It is very small, quite claustrophobic and definitely not someplace...More
