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.

The Zurich Toy Museum consists of a toy exhibition from the 1800's until perhaps 1980's (not sure). It was quite interesting to see the progression of the toys, particularly the dolls, through the decades. Initially, we thought the toys had been donated by different families,...More

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.
