This place is amazing, everything you were brought up with in the 12960's and 1970's is here, you just cannot marvel at what they have got. You say things like "mum had this" grandma has this" and I had this when I was a child!"

My husband Dave and I are working around the clock to comply with draconian legislation imposed on us at Land of Lost Content, by the Fire Service. The closing down on September 18th was horrifying to us. We have always prided ourselves on safety management,...More

Just one afternoon wasn't enough to explore this amazing treasure trove. There's something for everyone...my favourites: the newly weds' room of the 60's, the 70's construction toys, and the 60's Mondrian dress - wish I could have taken them all home. The 'Chuckie Chicken' display...More

Just so much to see, absolute visual overload. Brought back so many memories for me, my parents (80 years old) and their friends of 50 years. Astounded how Stella (owner/curator) could amass and display such a vast collection of ephemera. Loved the self service cafe!...More

Not everyone likes dusty, cluttered, almost claustrophobic corridors, leading in strict sequence over three floors to reveal a distinct vision of the twentieth century, warts and all. There is a definite theme here, encapsulated by the pun in the name of this unique museum. The...More

Be prepared for lots of clutter but interesting childhood memorabilia if you are of the older generation. You will more than once say I had that or I can remember those.

This museum is amazing. Its down a quiet side street and near a car park. The range of items is amazing, all displayed in many rooms in a large building. It is certainly a walk through time and I recognised many items from my childhood....More
