My husband and I enjoyed this small museum more than our 4 year old. For model rail enthusiasts it’s a definite must see. I found some of the old toys interesting like the toy building sets replicating brick laying which I’d never heard of before....More

I always enjoy looking at old stuff and learning a bit about the history. This place has some really good displays and a good amount of information available. 4 stars because I thought it was just a little over priced.

Worth a stop, and it doesn't cost much to get in but you will be done in about 20 minutes as it is not a very large collection, although if you're really interested in toys, the Bethnal Green toy museum in London is much bigger...More

Fascinating for those of a certain age. Lot of cars, trains, soldiers and stuff from our childhoods. But the trail for kids kept our 6 yr old interested and the woman at the desk was very sweet and questioned him afterwards, which he enjoyed. Great...More
