Although this is billed as an attraction for children and there is lots for them to see and do, I can’t help feeling it’s more for nostalgic adults! Wonderful array of toys from different eras. Mainly german but not just.

A nice small museum of toys. There is a small hands on section but most of the museum is decidedly hands off. Given Nuremberg's extensive toy history, would have been nice to emphasize the specific connection of Nuremberg to toys.
