It's a nice little museum, worth visiting if you have time. If you only have one day, or you're not so much into museums, don't bother. The museum has a nice collection of old toys, cars, dolls, tricicles, soldiers, kitchens.... it's clean and well organised....More

We were in Ponte de Lima on a Monday and wanted to visit the museum. Unfortunately it is only open from Tuesday to Sundays. As we loved the town we will certainly be back.

If you are looking for an opportunity to lose yourself in a couple of hours reminiscing about your childhood toys and games, take a visit to this lovely museum. (There's nothing digital here!). In addition to being a testimony to Portugal's fantastic toy manufacturing industry,...More
