When and where to visit
The Rothenburg Doll & Toy Museum is the Hofbronnengasse, about
half a block from Rothenburg's Marktplatz. (Look for a red house with a round
sign next to the doorway.) It's open daily year-round.
Puppen & Spielzeug Museum gift shop is well worth
visiting even if you don't have time to explore the museum. It's loaded with
dollhouse furnishings, miniature toys, modern editions of antique German picture
books, cards, cardboard dioramas and puppet theatres, and other items for
children and collectors.
