Nuremberg Toy Museum, Nuremberg

Nuremberg Toy Museum, Nuremberg (must see)

Nuremberg is considered one of the great Toy capitals, and faithful to its popularity offers the possibility of visiting the 'Spielzeugmuseum', or Toy Museum. This is one of the most impressive museums in Europe with a very extensive collection, and quality in each of the exhibits. It opened in 1974 and offers collections of all ages (especially the last 200 years) and ethnicities. You can find all kinds of toys – from simple ones made of normal material such as wood, metal, porcelain, cardboard, etc., to the sophisticated things visible nowadays in the relevant shops. Both adults and particularly children may be interested in visiting; when tired, they may occupy themselves with real play.

Tip:
If you don't speak German, be sure to request the audio guide when you purchase your ticket so you can get the most out of your visit.
The best part of the museum is the top floor with all the train collections. Avid toy train collectors would probably enjoy this museum the best!

Opening Hours:
Mon (during Christmas market): 10am-5pm; Tue-Fri: 10am-5pm; Sat, Sun: 10am-6pm; Daily (during the International Toy Fair): 10am-8pm
