Amsterdam Toy Museum

This collection of 20th-century toys is filled with a lifelong personal toy collection brought from the U.S. to Amsterdam. 


A private collector’s dream realized. Bringing together a collection of rare and obscure toys which represent the cutthroat practices in the toy busines presented as a wall-to-wall experience. It’s not aimed at young kids, but at visitors interested in the stories behind the toys.

Accompanied by over 600 Barbies, Lego, and train sets, it will elicit a feeling of shock and awe from the visitors.

If not through the sheer size of the toy collection or the fringe memorabilia of movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Nightmare Before Christmas, the fascinating background stories and anecdotes delivered with humor by the owner will definitely deliver.

It's not for young kids.
