This is a very interesting museum. There is a leaflet available when you enter that guides you trough the museum. With descriptions of what you see at each cabinet. Even though this is a toy museum, I would say that it is more adult focused....More
If you love old timey toys, you'll love this place!
Granted, it's a bit on the small side with not too many rooms, but there's a lot crammed into the space they do have and it's quite cheap to enter.
Beautiful toy exhibits through the...More
We didn’t actually go into the museum, because I was pretty horrified by the extortionate cost of coffee and cake at the cafe. It was very pleasant sitting outside gazing at the sea through the trees on a glorious day, but I don’t like getting...More

Since you didn't give any feed back when visiting us, it's hard to say anything for this anonymous comment : ) I don't understand what was the "inferior cake"? We bake here everything, and we are famous of fresh home made cakes (5,50-6,50...More

Thank you for your visit and nice feedback : )
I wish you welcome again some 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 museum is worth the visit. It’s €4 entry with the Helsinki card. On display is a huge range of toys from the 19th to 20th centuries. Plenty of dolls, bears and other toys inc. a fantastic range of space toys, Star Trek, Space 1999...More
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
