  • Great experience for toy lovers. Not great for young children as they cannot touch anything. Even in the toy shop we were watched closely by management and there was nothing my child could touch.  more »
  • A small, modestly priced museum very nicely presented. The various toys and games are representative of the SMA region. Impressive craftsmanship on many pieces - these weren’t just “toys” to whoever....  more »

  • Beautiful collection of Mexican local art. Its much better to take an accompanied tour sincs you can miss a lot of info if you do not read the hanging signs. The galleries and collection is changing and they also have events. Do not miss the terrace at the very top, its hidden on the right side of the rooftop.
  • Great collection of traditional toys from all parts of Mexico. 50 pesos for adults and 20 pesos for children. There’s also a room where the kids can actually play and our kids ages four through 11 had a blast.
