I had mixed feelings about visiting this place with my 8 year old daughter after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor but decided that for R15 (R10 per adult, R5 per child), it was worth a try. I am so glad we went. My daughter was...More

My husband and I wanted to have a look as we were told this was a great place to look at. I thought it was boring. Took us about 30 minutes to see it all. We paid R10 each adult which was not expensive. It...More

Great little museum where the toy trains were switched on for us. Always a treat! Lots of toy and collection cars, trains, planes, etc to purchase.

Lots and lots of various toys for the kids to see or buy. Worth popping in with the kids when in Simon's Town.

Not really that big, don't have huge expectations if you go here. Our son who is 7 wasn't that impressed. More for adults who want some nostalgia.

It is a real gem. Very special collection of train sets and soldiers and cars, not full of scary Victorian porcelain dolls. More miniature toys. Brings back great childhood memories. Enjoyed it more than expected.
