We travelled to Rothenburg in 2016 and the locals told us that the doll and toy museum had closed down. We asked specifically to go and visit it, but were told it closed down.

A nice travel in time. The museum takes you through a journey in time with regard to toy and toy making.

After charming thousands of adults and children for more than two decades, the museum collection has been auctioned off and the museum closed permanently. It will be missed.

This museum has an incredible collection of dolls in all sizes, from miniatures to life size. These are not your typical Barbie dolls - although they have those too.

Normally I pass on doll and toy museums but everything in this town is so special I just had to try it. I was rewarded with a great experience.

Visit this place if you enjoy dolls and antique toys. Wonderful selection set up in quaint rooms, take teenagers or well behaved small children. Enjoy the Barbie room, large scale doll house, carriages, and more.

The museum, while open, was an interesting spot, full of the antique dolls for which the region is known.Unfortunately, the owner became older, the rents increased and she finally closed and the dolls were auctioned off about 6 months ago. There are a few reviews...More
