Warrior Toy Museum & Collectors' Shop review 2 Users say 2/5 Rate it

The tongue-in-cheek warning next to the chugging toy train warns: 'No smoking unless you're a train'. It reflects the fun-loving character of Percy van Zyl, the man behind this impressive assortment of collectors' and contemporary toys. Shelves of 'celebrity' toy cars such as a flying Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mr Bean's lemony mini stand side by side with older, more valuable examples, and a battalion of toy soldiers wards off an ox-formationed attack of spear-wielding Zulus. Other interesting exhibits include a Nazi parade complete with a saluting Hitler and marching Hitler Youth, an Asah miniature piano, and a circus tent full of acrobatic figures. There's also a frightening number of glassy-eyed porcelain dolls with far-off stares that could give the Bride of Chucky a run for her money.

I visited the museum recently an it was interesting but I completely agree with the previous poster. The lady at the store was very rude and unhelpful. It actually made the visit to the museum unpleasant. Pity.

I had a rude awakening today that there are still people out there who simply do not care for customers or tourists. I wanted to pay admission for 2 adults today and was told I could not pay with my debit card, although it clearly states on the door that credit and debit cards are accepted. On questioning it the lady behind the counter very rudely remarked that she does not need people like us. It's not only a bad reflection on the toy museum but also on tourism in Simons town. Madam, you surely made my experience an unforgettable one, for all the wrong reasons.
