Where in the world is a Toy Musical Instrument Museum?

Surely, somewhere in the world, there must be one. There certainly *should* be. Musical Instrument Museums abound, in many countries, and would probably be fascinating to visit. But what I really want to see (and want to see archived) is a lovingly-curated collection of TOY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. Does anyone know where in the world such a place might be?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art contains a number of toy musical instruments in their collection. You can read about the collection here. The Met Museum web site will allow you to search for the items mentioned in the catalog and see if they are currently on display.

In Utrecht there is a fantastic and surprisingly substantial museum of mechanical musical instruments (maybe a third or so of which might be called toys).
