About museum

The museum was born by chance. Once I took part in the Antonov apples festival as a master of Teddy bears, and a Kolomna resident spoke so warmly about my babies, noting that they reminded her of her distant childhood. Her eyes sparkled, wrinkles disappeared, and a perky smile appeared. Right that moment, I realized that I wanted to save a piece of childhood for myself and share it with others. We grow up, stop playing with our toys, and they leave us. You don’t notice this at first, but with age and changes in the world you begin to analyze and remember; you want to see your childhood friends and tell them how cool and fun it was. It would be possible not only to tell, but also to show toy friends, games, and books. I began to look for forgotten toys, study their history, and then opened a private gallery museum of favorite toys.

Toys will gladly share their interesting and touching stories, reveal their amazing secrets, and definitely give happy smiles and a good mood!

The museum hosts workshops and a game room.

Let’s play together!
