  • It was a fun experience you won’t get in any other country. You don’t have to necessarily like toys to enjoy the originality and artistry of these toys throughout the years.

  • Several floors and rooms are filled with handmade toys. What is remarkable to me is that the construction materials are found everywhere. Toys made out of grass, wood, reeds etc. Very well done.

  • Nice slice of history through handmade Mexican toys (dolls, models, and so on). The ground floor has QR codes with good bilingual explanations of them. I wish the gift shop had some more interesting toys and crafts to buy.
  • The curator is a most wonderfully sweet man and lit up when we asked him questions. Absolutely beautiful and curated collection ranging from centuries to a few years old definitely cool spot to check out especially if you have kids. look, don't touch
