The Turkish Toy Museum (tur. İstanbul Oyuncak Müzesi) is located in a historic log cabin in the Asian district of Göztepe. It was founded by the Turkish poet and novelist Sunaya Akin and opened April 23, 2005, on the Children's Day, celebrated this day in Turkey.
We can find more than 4000 toys from around the world here. Many of them are real antiques. Among the exhibits is a large collection of miniatures, including miniature figurines of American presidents, antique toys from the collection of Walt Disney, a collection of space toys and trains, tin, porcelain dolls, and more.
The oldest toy in the local museum is a miniature violin coming from France from the year 1817.
