The Museum Library has over a hundred books, publications, magazines and dissertations. The collection has two sections: the history of toys and corporate museums. Specifically, international publications on the toy horse and its history, on collecting and on ancient toys are available for consultation. The original body of the library collection belonged to Pietro Catelli and his children. The library is continuously growing thanks to a thorough search for new publications.
The books are available for consultation by visitors only at the library.

  • Library opening hours:  Tuesday - Friday: 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
