This museum (or “Speelgoedmuseum” in Flemish) in nearby Mechelen is a don’t-miss treat for kids. With ongoing activities and rotating collections and exhibitions, it’s a great place for the youngsters to blow off steam while checking out toys and games in a foreign land.

Lovely museum, very well laid out and huge. Impossible to see it all in just a few hours. Wonderful way to reminisce about the toys we played with in our use. Nice to have some interactive activities also.

If you think children had lower variety of games and toys before minecraft, lego or matchbox was invented, you will be surprised here. It may also help imagining how our parents and grandparents lived before they grew up.

We two adults, 46 and 70, loved this museum. It brought back so many memories. Even though we're American, we recognized many of the items. The only negative was the lack of signage in English.

I visited this museum with my boyfriend. We both enjoyed it very much as we saw a lot of toys we recognised from our childhood. Especially the miniature train department is really lovely!

The museum is a bit run down but has a great collection of toys. It really was a trio down memory lane for me. And my four year old daughter was enjoying it as well as it gave her ideas for presents.

The museum offers a voyage trough the history of toys during the last centuries. Especially the collection of dolls is really precious and overwhelming.
