My husband and I were on a river cruise several years ago, and were in Nuremberg and happened to see the sign that said toy museum. We had to visit it and just had a wonderful time. The displays were outstanding. I especially loved the doll display as I have a doll from Germany. Her name is Minerva and she has a purple stamp on her stomach that says made in Germany. She is over 100 years old and is still in good condition. Her mohair wig is almost gone but the rest of her is really great. I did not see one in the collection. We really enjoyed the doll house collection. Many were so elegant and made from hand carved wood. These are just 2 of the wonderful displays we saw. There were many more. A big thanks to the employees who helped us.
