This was a great collection of antique dolls & toys. And the doll houses were amazing. We used the audio guide & picked the exhibits we wanted to learn about. Good coffee and cheesecake at the museum cafe.

I'm over 40 years and still love toys and toy museums. At first I was sceptic about this one, but it turned out to be very Good. This sort of museums are normaly specialized. This has a big asset of incredible toy furniture, kitchens and tecnical toys. Nuremberg was famous for mechanical toys, train models and steam engine toys. These... More

A very rich collection of all kind of toys.You can spend quite some time, remembering and feeling as a small child. There is also a nice small garden.

As far as I'm concerned this is a "Must See". There are 3 floors of wonderfully designed toys dating back to the 11th century...maybe further. Don't be deceived by the first floor. The amazing things are on the 2nd floor. Dolls houses like you could never imagine. The 3rd floor contains toys you will recognize from the 1900 - 2000.... More

Nice overall museum. Small child enjoyed it, especially the play area. Most write ups are in German only. Only disappointment was model train wasn't running. Can get thru in under an hour if in a rush.

As a huge history fan I enjoyed this museum. I must say that my kids did not seem to be interested by this site when we were there. However, I saw other kids around that seemed to enjoy this museum.

The museum goes over several floors with lots to see. They have one big train set build of the Omaha train station, unfortunately it isn't operated very... More

Very big collection of toys truelly recomended for children and adults, playing area inside and out side of the museum, the audioguide is good. The museum shop is a bit dissapointing not a lot to offer.

Layout a little confusing but takes you back to your childhood. The ticket desk is combined with the souvenirs and can get busy.

We saw quite a collection of toys from around the world. We had no idea that we'd see toys from our own childhood. It was fun and a great way to spend an hour or so. The train set is amazing with all the buildings and details. There was an area set up where children could play board games with... More
