Zurich Toy Museum – Childhood Dreams of Yesterday and Today

This museum in the oldest part of Zurich takes visitors on a nostalgic journey through the last 300 years of childhood.

Whether you want to indulge in reminiscences or explore the toys owned by your grandparents – the Zurich Toy Museum has something to appeal to all the generations.

A glance at the old doll’s houses evokes memories of domestic life in the past. The dolls wear the fashions of bygone eras, while train sets and steam engines reflect the beginnings of technology. The bulky vehicles (here in miniature format) would be unrecognizable on today’s roads.

The museum describes itself as “small yet refined” – and it certainly is. If you have a bit of spare time while exploring the city, you will not regret visiting this museum.
