The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures

National Museum of Miniatures and Toys

For almost four decades, The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures has delighted generations with its diverse collection of playthings for children. From dolls to toy cars, to trucks and games the museum’s Executive Director Petra Kralickova says, “A visit to the museum is like taking an adventure through history.” This year look for a new doll gallery exhibit, and “A Space of Our Own” will do a deep dive into doll houses. One of Kralickova’s favorite things about the museum is when she hears someone exclaim, “Wow, I had that toy!”
