Museu del Joguet de Catalunya

Museu del Joguet de Catalunya Review

Hundreds of antique dolls and toys are on display here—including collections owned by, among others, Salvador Dalí, Federico García Lorca, and Joan Miró. It also hosts Catalonia's only caganer exhibit, from mid-December to mid-January in odd-numbered years. These playful little figures answering nature's call have long had a special spot in the Catalan pessebre (Nativity scene). Farmers are the most traditional figures, squatting discreetly behind the animals, but these days you'll find Barça soccer players and politicians, too. Check with the museum for exact dates.
