The Toy Museum is famous for its collection of antique toys. Aside from being able to marvel at the historical exhibits, younger visitors are encouraged to become actively involved and try out all kinds of different toys for themselves.
A hands-on museum
The Toy Museum emphasizes three central themes: “Games”, “Experiences” and “Fascination”. The ground floor provides plenty of space for youngsters to have fun and play, with all kinds of tracks to run marbles down, cars to scoot around on, and even a giant matador. On the first floor, Teddy and his pals lead on an interactive journey through a treasure chamber and doll house. A hundred-year-old toy shop is certain to set kids’ hearts pounding with pure joy.
Put “the pedal to the metal” on the Carrera track
On the Carrera track, visitors – big and small – can play racecar driver and see how their skills measure up. The maze, a shadow room, miniature toys and a small exhibition of pieces from the Toy Museum’s private collection are other magnets for visitors. On the second floor, antique model trains chug around a twelve meters-long model railway line.
Little visitors can look forward to a high-speed adventure as they slither down a slide that drops down from the second floor back down to the first floor. Afterwards, the kids will be glad to snuggle up in the reading corner and recharge their batteries for a while. Also good to know: Aside from the permanent exhibitions and play zones, the Toy Museum regularly hosts special exhibitions on a variety of exciting topics that are certain to intrigue everyone.
