Toy Museum

The building opened in 1971 in the heart of Nuremberg – a city of toys for more than 600 years. Nuremberg's tradition extends from medieval doll makers to later makers of tin figurines and metal toys, to today's International Toy Fair. In its 1400 square meters (15,000 sq. ft.) of exhibition space, the Toy Museum displays "the world in miniature," with dolls, doll-sized shops, tin figurines, toys in metal and wood, and a very large model train layout.
