Visit to The Toy Museum in Stockholm

Many children in Stockholm are mostly keen on spending their weekends in playgrounds where they can be physically active. That’s what actually kids need – to play and have fun. This kind of free play is unstructured, develops kids’ imagination and creativity! It’s also good for parents whose children are overactive. They burn off their energy playing, running, jumping, climbing, sliding, hanging and much more which later provides parents with peaceful weekend evenings:))))

My daughter gets overactive at times, and I think sometimes it’s good to devote her energy to learn something new. So at weekends, I often try to use the time to the advantage of my daughter. I like taking her to educational places since she started to demonstrate her curiosity in almost everything like a sponge soaking up a huge amount of information from her environment.

I think, museums are good to start with if you want to show your kids richness and diversity of cultures, develop their aesthetic taste and introduce them things they have never seen before. So a few weeks ago, my daughter made her very first visit to the Toy Museum in Stockholm. It’s an educational as well as amusing place where children learn things for fun.

About the Museum

Lekmuseet is a toy museum located in Svensksundsvägen 5, Stockholm (since 2005). It’s a museum with a cafe, play rooms, a shop, and has a collection of elegant toys placed inside glass cases. The museum displays tons of toys from every generation including trains, cars, dolls, animals, doll houses, soft toys from the 20th century, and even some old arcade machines! Most notable attraction for me was a collection of Walt Disney cartoon toys. I felt so nostalgic to see the characters from my childhood:)) The cave setting is amazing, looks like a mysterious place, and the personnel running the museum are friendly and helpful.

The overall experience was good, and my daughter liked it! I don’t think she still remembers our visit to the museum but I know for sure we will definitely come back since one visit is not enough to learn the fascinating museum.
