Welcome to the website of the Museum of Toys and Play
The Museum of Toys and Play is the biggest and the oldest museum of toys in Poland. On an exhibition area of six hundred thirty-one square metres there are presented a few thousands of exhibits. Visitors can see a multitude of exhibitions, among others, historical and folk toys, dolls from all over the world, model cars, aeroplanes, boats, railway models and theatrical dolls.
We endeavour to make the visiting of the museum unusual adventure for children, hence interactive exhibitions where young learners of the history of toys can not only watch but also touch the exhibits. During visiting the museum children have a chance to play both in a play area and, in summer, also in the courtyard of the museum.
The Museum of Toys and Play is housed in a historic 19th-century building of the former covered markets. Every day at noon from the clock tower of the museum a Świetokrzyska witch which was sculptured by Arkadiusz Latos and installed on the tower by a clockmaker, Bonifacy Komorowski, „flies off”.
