The private collection features hundreds of old dolls, approximately one hundred historic teddy bears,and other toys full of history. The toys of the collection are from Finland and thus reflect the Finnish culture and game tradition. Of great interest are for example the toys and games of wartime

First of all, the cafe at the museum as well as the green terrace looks pretty much as the one you could have imagined while reading tales in childhood, at least it was for me. A little from Alice in wonderland, something from the Mummins...More

The Suomenlinna toy museum is a must for families with children visiting the Suomenlinna fortress island in Helsinki - but for adults, too, for nostalgia and visual delight. The collection of antique toys is surprisingly large and variable, holding items from a large time span,...More

It's not a big museum, but packed with many old toys. One of the best toy museums I've been to and I think it's the most interesting museum in Sumomenlinna. Entrance fee is €7 for adults (about the same as the other museums in Suomenlinna)....More
