Visitor Information

The Toy Museum's Renaissance façade.

Toy Museum

For centuries, Nuremberg has been a toy city of world renown, and the Toy Museum is part of this rich cultural heritage. Its comprehensive and exceptionally high quality collection spans the time from antiquity to the present day, with a strong focus on the past two centuries.

The four floors behind the Renaissance façade of a beautiful Nuremberg town residence encompass the entire variety of historic toys. Wooden toys await visitors on the ground floor. On the first floor, dolls and exquisite dolls' houses allow a glimpse of life in centuries past. The world's most comprehensive collection of E. P. Lehmann toys tells the fascinating history of this famous German family company. A "Tin World" is presented on the second floor. Recent toy history may be found on the top floor, in an attractively designed exhibition space. Nextdoors children may play to their heart’s delight in a special kids' area.

Between May and late October, a large outdoor playground, the "Shadowland" in late medieval cellar vaults, the museum’s café "La Kritz" in the historical court yard and a large LGB garden train layout are available to our visitors.
