You'll enjoy this museum even if you are not a child any more. The brilliant collection of toys will melt your heart and make you smile. Though the museum is not large, the hour that you'll spend in it will surely make yor day.

Impressive collection of toys. A must visit. The daughter of the author runs the place. Miticulously kept and takes you back to history heaven. 10 minutes by ferry from helsinki no one should leave without going to this museum.

This is a delightful museum, attached to a delightful cafe, in a delightful garden setting! It is tucked away from other main attractions on the island, and well worth the detour. It was our favourite part of our visit to Suolenlinna. The toy museum is...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
