Toy Museum and Mom’s Break

A museum of toys, not only to play with, but  a full history of toys…they a really know how to do a kiddo’s museum right here.  I had to tear Eliot away to get home for naptime and all for only 1.5 Euros!?  We joined our new friends Christine and Jakob for this morning trip and Eliot had a blast. Although the history here is not nearly as ancient as the architecture in the rest of Salzburg, just thought I’d share some of the fun pics of this museum…(I have to say, this isn’t my most exciting post for those of you that have recently started following, but if you have kids, or perhaps are still a kid yourself, you may have a stronger appreciation for the joy of this day!)

Eliot is literally jumping for joy, I caught him mid-air...

Like some other restaurants and such in Old Town Salzburg, it is built into the Monchberg Cliff (the one with the Fortess on top!)…so every so often you are reminded of the huge rock wall that makes  up one side…

The first room actually was all about marbles. ( Ben, I am really thinking this is something for you to build in your basement, dude, get on it!)

and into the coolest Marble maze, as it hits little triangles that makes a lovely chime sound.... And, you do it again.and again and again.

Not pictured- tea for moms to sit and drink while their kids construct and destroy.  It was the easiest museum I have ever taken Eliot.  I didn’t bother to add the pics of the shadow maker, toy maze, construction site, cinema or slide!  It was quite a day.

Sp!?! Museum- a must-see for parents that visit Salzburg!

  1. I guess I must still be a kid, Kim, or I think how much fun both of my girls would have had in a place like that! Enjoyed the pics!
