It's only 5 euros. The second floor was the best. The security guard was keen to show us how to get the displays to light up and play .

This Museum has interesting examples of furniture, household items and clothing. Additionally there are fascinating examples of wooden carved goods, originally hobby items, but later commercially produced. Also there is a collection of toys and puppets - some of which can be tried.

If you love antiques, folk art, dolls, puppets, hand painted furniture and costumes, then this is your museum. Fantastic collection- including an amazing mechanical doll theater depiction of the life of Jesus, and a huge collection of hand-carved and painted marionettes spanning over 150 years...More

On the Neustadt side of the Elbe, a twenty minutes walk from the Zwinger, this three floor museum displays a great collection of works, including rustic handcrafted furniture, costumes, historic toys, Xmas paraphernalia, woodcarvings, metal forged items, miniatures, and much more.
