Looking for a change of pace during the Christmas Shopping? Why not pop into Brighton Toy Museum?
You’ll never seem more relevant than when the toys you loved as a child are now exhibits in a museum.
We’ve got brilliant collections of all kinds of cars, trains, construction sets, stuffed toys with brilliant characterful faces and currently there’s a traditional Danish Christmas market, constructed entirely out of Lego.
Walk Back To A World Of Analogue
Take a break from the overstimulating toys with flashing lights and electronic sounds and calm yourself with the gentle clatter of a Hornby trainset and the gentle whirr of a huge Ferris wheel hand built out of Meccano. Give yourself a minute or two to look at the stuff that kids had to play with decades ago and remember simpler times. And, if they really take your fancy, look in the museum shop to see if any are available to buy.
We don’t sell exhibits, but we do stock a fit to burst range of model trains, toy cars, Revel and Airfix model planes and tanks, books on a range of subjects, but mostly about steam trains, and postcards. We offer local tourist information for free too.
So next time you’re in Brighton and you’re looking for something to break up the day, you want to entertain the kids, or bring your own parents for a bit of a treat, come to Brighton Toy and Model Museum. You won’t be disappointed.
Brighton Toy and Model Museum will be closed between Christmas and New Year to give all our wonderful volunteers the opportunity to enjoy their festive frolics. After we close at 5pm on Sat 21st Dec we'll be shut until opening as normal on 2nd January 2020. We wish all our lovely customers and supporters a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year! Looking forward to seeing everyone in 2020!
