Toy Museum

Lively museum with no fewer than 25,000 toys, including many old mechanical toys.
A genuine treasure trove, the Toy Museum is located in a beautiful 1900 family mansion, and has all the attributes of a typical grandmother's or grandfather's attic. It's as if several generations one after the other came here to deposit their childhood companions, as visitors wander from one surprise to the next: the toy truck of your dreams, the exact replica of your old worn-out teddy bear or the electric train set you never got. Thousands of other toys complete the picture, the oldest dating back to 1830. Describing this place would be attempting the impossible: you simply have to see it to believe it. Here, children can run around, play and tear down the stairs without generating irate looks from the (conspicuously absent) guards. You also won't find any fine museum-type classification, but rather an incomparable atmosphere, a nostalgic charm that will appeal to both children and adults.
