The Trains Will be Running On Time All Day at Brighton Toy and Model Museum

Well, things are warming up aren’t they? Spring is in the air, the sun is out and people have started coming to Brighton for an icecream, to sit by the sea and to play on the pier.
If you’re in Brighton on Saturday 25th of April, then why not pop into Brighton Toy and Model Museum? As well as all our usual attractions and the Easter Bunny Hunt we’ll also be running the gauge 0 trains so you can see them all in action.
Our 00-gauge model railway layout is always in motion, running through our interpretation of local landmarks at a 1:76 scale, however, most of the gauge 0 trains are not normally run so when they are it’s always a bit of an occasion. Many of these trains are from outside of the UK so it’s not always possible to see them in action, running through their ~1:43 scale layout.

The trains will be running at the heart of the museum and admission covers all the exhibits in the building. If you haven’t been to the museum recently you’ll notice a few changes, such as the 00 layout being updated and modernised, and new cabinets built specially to house our expanding range of Corgi Toys.
Unfortunately, the museum will be closed to visitors on the 18th of April, although the shop and information point will still be open if you need us. And to make up for this closure we wanted to do something a little bit special for our visitors, so we’re holding an impromptu running day so you can see our collection in action. We open our doors at 11am on Saturdays and we’ll be running the trains all day on the 25th so do come along, enjoy the spectacle and don't forget that if you’re under 16 you can enter our Bunny Hunt to win free admission for a year for you and your family.
We look forward to seeing you!
