The Toy Museum Prague offers a fascinating collection of toys spanning three centuries. The Golden Age of Toys was put together and is curated by Ivan Steiger, a prominent Czech filmmaker, illustrator and cartoonist, who has lived and worked in Germany since 1969.

Ivan Steiger studied at the Prague Film Faculty, where he trained under the well-known Czech writer Milan Kundera. He graduated as film and TV scriptwriter and director in 1967 and even as a student published cartoons in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, The Tribune and the Daily Mirror. Following a number of successful projects in Czechoslovakia, he started exhibiting abroad and emigrated in 1968, settling in Munich.
