Million Toy Museum


Thousands of toys from across the decades are amassed in this jam-packed private museum. Rare porcelain elephants, wooden Japanese kokeshi dolls, wind-up robots and retro racing cars are filed alongside mass-produced Santa Claus and Shrek figurines. It isn't just toys; the impressively large and diverse collection includes the likes of ancient pottery and old coconut scrapers.
