The museum was very small. It consists of only 2 rooms. Located on the fifth floor and the elevator was not working. It opens at 2pm which is quite late. That said it does have the exhibitions covering toys from late 1800s.

The Zurich toy museum is a small, but interesting place. Located at the top of an office building, the exhibit is pretty small and cramped but has some interesting pieces. I thought the Migros doll exhibit, the "Swiss Barbie" was interesting, as was the, how...More
