Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
Margarete Steiff founded the Steiff Toy Company in 1880, and Margarete Steiff Museum pays homage to her greatest legacy: plush toys. Steiff was known to build all the toy animal prototypes herself. She insisted that the toys be made of natural, safe materials, and her company motto was "Only the best is good enough for children." The company continues to make toys by hand using natural materials for the fur and eyes. You can distinguish a Steiff toy by the button sewn into the animal's ear.

  • An interesting and fun museum for kids and adults. The presentation is offered in many languages. My 2 year old was a little scared of the moving parts and sounds in the presentation, but enjoyed being able to climb on all of the large stuffed animals, and explore the world of Steiff. Prices for museum are reasonable, but Steiff products are very expensive. Café in museum is reasonably priced and the food is okay.
  • It was well worth it. It wasn't just a museum but an experience. My 16 month old loved it so much. Songs, adventure and moving Steiff animals in search of the teddy bears of the world. And when it's over you get to see all the large animals and sit on many life size ones to take pictures, including and elephant! We'll definitely be going back.
