Zurcher Spielzeugmuseum, Zurich

#7 of 42 in Museums in Zurich
Appreciate toys and their relation to culture at Zurcher Spielzeugmuseum, where the collection covers these mainstays of childhood from the 19th century to the 1920s. The museum illustrates the development of civilization through toys: dolls whose costumes showcase changing fashions, dollhouses that illustrate different architecture and lifestyles, and an exhibit of cars and trains that tracks the evolution of transportation. Elsewhere in the museum you can pore over old board games and children's books.

  • We enjoyed this place as much as our 5 & 8 years old children did. Small and quite tight place but has a lot of good & nice things on it. Entry fee is a good value for money.  more »

  • It's a bit too small, but the collections are great and they reminded me of toys my parents used to have when we did a clean up on my grandparents storage.
  • Wonderful lady greeted us to the museum. We felt welcome. It's small space packed with many years of toys history. Children corner in case little ones get bored is provided too. Lift is very small, we hardly fitted with the pram in it. Enough space however to park it on the ground floor of the building. Have cash ready, no cards are accepted.
