Here you will found toys made in the ancient times by hand. Many were creative and made from unusual materials. This is not only a place for kids, but if you will see it with kids eyes you can spend a wonderful time there.

The museum was thorough and interesting, but it's a tough place to be when it's crowded, as it was at Christmas. We had hoped to find gifts for our young friends there but found their gift shop overpriced and understocked.
