MuseumofToys

The museum (in Portuguese, only) was inaugurated in October 2006 with the many toys Ms Luisa Azevedo Meyer collected along her life. For some years before that she exhibited her collection in shopping malls, galleries or cultural centers. Unfortunately, she wasn’t alive to see her dream come true, but today parties of school children visit it daily to know the toys with which their grandparents played, learn to make toys from cheap material, hear and tell stories and, of course, play.

O museu foi inaugurado em outubro de 2006 com os brinquedos que D. Luisa Azevedo Meyer colecionou por toda sua vida. Durante alguns anos antes disso, ela exibiu sua coleção em shoppings, galerias ou casas de cultura. Infelizmente, não viveu para ver seu sonho realizado, mas hoje, grupos de escolares o visitam diariamente para conhecer os brinquedos com que seus avós brincavam, aprender a fazer brinquedos com materiais baratos, ouvir e contar histórias e, claro, brincar.
