Toys, toys and toys, from tin doll houses up to tin trains Apr 04, 2011
In case you're a fan of small museums this is one to visit. This one is all about Dutch toys from 1850 and later. Most of them are made out of tin. The museum is not accesible for dissabled or people who have difficulties climbing steep staircases.

The toys are a nice mixture for boys and girls, but some doll houses appear more for adult women to me. Some of them are models of shops complete with lighting and cash registers.

There are many toy cars, trains and some plains as well.

I think there are some toys missing, like board games and Hula hoops (both for arround the body and in vertical posstion for running on the streets), stilts and shuffleboard (Dutch version ofcourse).

Being a museumvisitor because of my study I won't visit this museum again. Purely out of professional point of view. But for people who haven't seen this museum yet this is a good stop and not a waist of the money.

This museum is owned by the lady behind the cash register. It is a very small museum and not registerd as a museum, therefor the Museumjaarkaart is not valid :S

De kermis in Avenhorn is toch wel te doen of niet? Ben daar nog nooit geweest (heb nota benen in Schardam gewoond en nu sinds december in Hoorn). Veel plezier alvast op de kermis!
