This is a good place to spend an hour but could be longer if you understand Flemish. The price however is quite expensive for one hour experience in a foreign language.

I visited the museum with my 3 year old. She was pretty entertained throughout. Large collection of toys but the decor is getting dated. More hands-on fun would be great.
