the building looked a bit imposing from the outside but once inside all the rooms draw you in with the games you can play or the I spy lists which always make the visit much more fun & interesting. For us, the parents it was a trip down memory lane seeing all the old toys or board games we had... More

Stopped in on a Saturday morning with our 15 year old (high functioning) autistic son. The building looks huge when driving up, but only a small part of the building is devoted to the museum. The cost was $10 for adults (over 18), and $5 for kids. I thought the price was a little high for what you get, but... More

4 generations of my family attended school here. It was fun to go there and see the transformation. You may find yourself talking to the eccentric owner who pretends to be a custodian. The building itself is worth the stop. The toys and trains are mind boggling and so fun to see. If you're in the mood for nostalgia and... More

Very interesting for kids. Each room had interactive toys for kids to play with while adults could look at antique toys and reminiscence about their lost childhood! Reasonably priced also. Loved the resident cat Lou.

We went with our parents and children. Everyone had a great time! The pinball machines were free, there was a hands on display in every room, and there is a friendly cat who roams around too.

As avid toy collectors we spotted this on trip advisor and detoured to visit while on our travels from the UK and found it a great fun stop. Really good selection of toys and very well laid out. As cat fans meeting Louis was also a nice extra surprise! This museum is well worth the visit.

The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum is really neat no matter what your age is. My grandson enjoyed every room except the doll room.

This is a fine destination for Families and Baby Boomers. They have all types of toys displayed that will bring back memories for all Baby Boomers. You may be surprised at how many of the toys displayed you had either as a kid or for your kids. They also have two very nice model railroad displays (HO & O Gauges).... More
