On the ground floor, the journey on the zinc train takes us to know the history of some of the most important national toy manufacturers, moving on to the confrontation between Portuguese and foreign toys in a logic of understanding manufacturing; how foreign molds were copied and imitated. Don't finish the ground floor without looking carefully at the review of almost two hundred Portuguese manufacturers that invite you to go up to the first floor.
The exhibition's narrative is complete on the upper floor, where many of the collection's pieces are exposed, following a chronological order, decade by decade, framed with formal and technical changes and associated with the sociopolitical transformations of the world, whose impact was felt at the national level. Spindles and tinplate flutes, wooden beach buckets with colorful motifs, paper pulp dolls, leaf cannons, passing by vans, boats, trains, tricycles, pedal cars, traveling around the world from plastics, the heyday of Portuguese toys, to Strumps in pvc, everything was made in Portugal. The contexts are varied and help us to understand the path of Portuguese toys over time.
