    Great day with the family
    A ferry trip to Suomenlinna island is easy and not long. Island itself is authentic with so much green and old on it. You can walk around, have a picnic or eat a pie in Toy Museum Cafe. Super break to old times fashion and toys. For children just interesting to see.

    Friendly museum with a quality coffee shop in a charming villa.
    This cosy private family museum and cafeteria has served visitors for decades. Collection is remarkable, including some wartime specialities and various kids’ porcelein service sets by Arabia before 40’s. Cafeteria serves excellent home made treats, coffees and quality tea.

    Joyful museum
    This museum is located in a charming wooden villa. The museum is quite small but the collection is plentiful. There are hundreds of old dolls, antique teddy bears, and other old toys from the early 19th century until the 1960s. The museum has a cozy Cafe Samovarbar with a summer terrace.

It is a very nice experience visiting this museum. Some dolls like Micky are not representing their fictional characters in my option. However, many of them are so finely made that you will fell like passing through a journey to your childhood.

Everything about the Suomenlinna toy museum is just super! The house itself is lovely, and the collection of toys in the museum very interesting for young and old. The café is very cozy, the drinks and food tasty and service friendly not forgetting to mention the carefully chosen music that ties all the elements together! I have been to the museum and the cafe several times over the years and it is always a pleasure to visit it!

An absolute MUST if you are visiting the island! First of all, I enjoyed it as an adult seeing some toys from when I was a child. Second, my child enjoyed it as I taught him about how life was a hundred years ago based on the toys and their play houses! He was fascinated by how houses were so different through the ages! The space age toys were so neat and we really took our time going through all the cases! The gift shop has some super cool vintage toys and I purchased some beautiful souvenirs as well as a vintage toy for my son. Highly recommend touring around and learning about the toys! Beautiful!

Closed until first of April. Would be nice if someone would have noted that. Quaint but island in repair mode. Don't follow Google maps

Small set of rooms that mostly show creepy dolls. Not really worth the entrance fee. Helsinki card will only give you a discount.

Fresh homemade treats, cool little museum with vintage toys. Some have a brief history about the toy. Guides in many different languages. The owner is extremely friendly and nice and made it such a pleasant trip.

We LOVED the toy museum. The museum pieces are displayed in the downstairs part of a house, but as we were the only visitors at the time we were there, it did not feel cramped, and we had plenty of time to browse the very-packed displays and find all our favourite pieces. My family and I enjoyed reading the extra (free) booklet provided which discussed the history of many pieces and the background of the creation of the museum itself.
