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 heard about this from other tourers and hunted it up in Old Town Zurich. Well worth it. You have to climb some stairs to get to it. There is a lift but not great for wheelchairs. The museum itself ...  more »
  • Interesting Museum, there are unique antique pieces. But it is small, narrow, rather poorly presented, with little explanation.

  • The museum is nice. Although is small and could include more information about the exhibition.
  • Small museum (just 2 small floors) but a lot of interesting old toys and not expensive. There was a little game to find a few toys for a prize, plus a little play area on the side. Nice way to spend an hour.
