    We are a non profit organization and we have a toy museum in Rhodes, Greece that just opened last year.The entrance for the museum is free. In the beautiful stone building, situated in the middle of the nature, you can find lots of Greek toys from the 1930's til 1990.

    It's the possibility for visitors to play with our interactive toys too. We use the museum also for cultural events like puppet theater, concerts e.t.c, Inside the museum it's a small gift shop. We will be open daily from the beginning of April til the end of October. We do need help with the visitors , most are from Germany, England, Russia, Greece. We also make restorations in old toys and making photos from each toy to make a book at the future.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will learn from the interaction with international visitors that visit our museum. They can learn also about the history from the Greek toys and culture. In generally they will see what it needs to run a museum.

    Of course they can learn a lot from the unique natural and archaeological environment of Rhodes, one of the most popular islands in Greece and worldwide. We do also some antique toy restorations and volunteers can have some lessons about the restorations.
