The Toy’s museum exhibits a great variety of antique toys, belonging to the period between the end of the XIX century and the first half of the XX century. This museum is situated in the great halls of Palazzo Bruca (XVIII century), that belonged to the Prince Scammacca della Bruca. The Palace has a magnificent courtyard in its interior, with a neo-classic fountain that represents Neptune. The entrance to the museum is through a gallery with Ionic columns. Hundred of toys furnish evidence for the pastimes and games of children in the old days and they are kept in elegant cases. The museum has some halls devoted to laboratories for children, where it is possible to assist to some shows and games. A library, a bookshop and a café, where it is possible to meet each other, are some of the museum’s offers. In the bookshop you can buy games, books, gadgets for adults and children.
