Tips for you
“Kids may not enjoy. I did enjoy.” Entrance bit confusing, so walk slowly to find the place beside cafe. It is amazing to see all those old toys. Looks as the collection of toys is used/played by kids and now stored in museum. Tys are played in different level shelves which kids may not be able to see all. So dot plan this trip for your kids. I perosnally enjoyed watching all those olden day toys. They all are made of steel sheets. Not plastic. Many of them mechanical toys with springs or some kind of mechnaical mechanisms. At the end my daughter was screaming that she is bored and i had to finish watching toys fast.
