This museum has a great collection of dinky cars, the railway part of museum is small and a collection of dolls okay. Museum needs some more of life for a toy museum. It needs to attract the little folk.

I was really amazed by this little museum. The dolls, teddy bears and cars are fabulous. As well as the train set which runs around a circuit. The dolls house and miniature furniture is stunning. Definitely worth a visit

Take your kids here if you want to show them what “real” toys looked like back in the day. Take your time and wear confortable shoes.
