Photography

Although many museums no longer permit photography by their visitors, we are different! Not only do we want you to enjoy SEEING the great toys of your childhood on your visit, but we also ENCOURAGE you to take all of the photos you want, so that you can take those memories home with you to share with others! Just remember to bring plenty of film and batteries, as there is so much here to photograph, you may run out!
