It is in the oldest village in Portugal, Ponte de Lima, that you can find the Portuguese Toy Museum, installed next to the Roman bridge on the right, in Casa do Arnado and its annexes.
Those who visit the permanent exhibition are guided on a journey that goes back to the end of the 19th century until 1986, showing the Portuguese manufacturers of that time. During the course of the exhibition, it is possible to get an idea of manufacturers, manufacturing techniques, raw materials and geographical distribution of Portuguese industries.
Toys such as tinplate rattles, wooden beach buckets, paper pulp dolls, vans, boats, trains, tricycles and pedal cars are some of the toys that you will be able to enjoy in this “journey”. Through the garden, you can access the Sala das Brincadeiras, the Toy Workshop and the temporary exhibition room. The “mandatory” way out is through the store, where you can find real rarities and take home toys that are unique in the world.
