  • They are currently under renovation and one floor was hut which meant you could not get in without climbing up a steel staircase and I have mobility issues. However, it is amazing! Lots of dolls...  more »
  • Stunning collections beautifully displayed. Fine miniature room and shop settings. Incredibly cheap entry fee (and engaging staff at admission desk). Even if you can only spare an hour, go and visit!  more »
  • A fantastic place for adults and children. The kids can spend at least 2~3 hours here! You can play some toys on the top floor.
  • Very good. Not only shows toys from the past in glass cabinets but also has toys and games to play with as you go round. Quite nostalgic for some toys of my youth but there were also different toys from Germany. Lots of miniatures and dolls. Lots of many different construction toys. Lots for everyone.
