  • Toy museum

    As others stated the museum is at the Anatolian Side of Istanbul, at a residential area. We went by car, has a small parking lot, also possible to park at the streets around. A toy museum sounds more attractive to children but we have a 3.5 years ol daughter, unfortunately she didn't enjoy it as much as we hoped. Not being able to touch the toys and almost thousands of objects confused her. I guess children with an older age (at least six) will have a better time. On the other hand all the adults had wonderful time. It takes about 2 hours to see all the toys. Some of them are quite antique. you can see toys from japan, usa, germany etc. Actually you travel within history with them starting from 19th century to present. Doll houses, trains, rockets, cars, celebrity dolls, cowboys, native americans, many other toys were very interesting. There is a cafe inside to rest and they offer souvenirs. Many tourists go around historical places of Istanbul mostly at European Side, but go visit this museum if you have any extra time. We went there as a rainy day activity but it was more than we expected.

  • Must-visit museum for everyone

    Istanbul Toy Museum (Istanbul Oyuncak Muzesi) is located on the Asian side of Istanbul in the Goztepe area of the Kadikoy district. It was opened in 2005 by collector, writer, poet Sunay Akin when he decided to open a museum displaying toys from all over the world. Some even go back to the 18th century, but most of the ones I've seen are from the early 20th century. Most of the countries where the toys are from are Germany, Japan, the USA, Portugal, but I have also seen items from Papua New Guinea, China, and Korea. If you're interested in seeing Eskimo toys, Native American toys, spacecraft items, all of which are creatively placed in separate rooms, you need to see this place. You can even see the toys of US Presidents George Washington and Richard Nixon that were manufactured in 1960. If you think it'd be a waste of time to visit this museum as it appeals only to children, you should think again. Yes, a lot of locals bring their kids to the museum but I have also seen lots of tourists and adults; it's simply a joy to see the toys ranging from dolls to aeroplanes to military items to trains and other memorabilia. You can also learn about the history of Turkey's involvement in the Korean War, the Tatar population in Crimea or how Hitler designed some propaganda toys to lure Turkey into World War II. The museum is a small historical building with three floors and the items are placed in glass windows with good lighting. Photographing is allowed as long as you don't use flash, but the reflections and tight spaces may make it a tad difficult to get everything in the frame. I am attaching some photos; I hope they'll give you an idea as to what you can expect. As of October 2016, the price is 12 Turkish Liras per adult, which is less than $5 US.Most people from the European side might have never heard of this museum or its location, but if you take the ferry to Kadikoy and get a taxi, the drive to Goztepe is about 20 minutes. You can also get here by public transport; you need to get off at the Goztepe Park if you're coming from the seaside and walk up north about 2 kilometres. If you're coming from the Minibus Yolu side, the walk is a little shorter, around 1.5 kilometres. Just print the directions for yourself and you might even enjoy the walk on a nice sunny day. Another option would be to visit the museum if you're down on Bagdat Street (Bagdat Caddesi), the upscale shopping district with lots of shops and restaurants. It's a short walk up from the Goztepe Park. If you're coming by car, the museum offers a limited parking space as well.

  • Toys are not just for kids

    Toy museum is a good goal in the eastern part of istanbul. You can see detailed dollhouses made by hands of toy shoppers years ago. You can see cruel toys of the period of second world war in one room, Toys of the star wars period in another room and...Each room and its theme tells a part of history from the veiw point of toys.
