What a wonderful trip down memory lane. Had the most enjoyable time and can't wait to go back as I'm sure there must have been things I missed!

We are moving to the area and have been looking at the local attractions and would have to recommend this as a must see. I was blown away with nostalgia whilst my wife enjoyed her coffee. Very well done, very nice staff and I'm still feeling like a five year old again

The real stars of this museum are Hillery and Phil. The museum is their lifes passion. Crammed with exhibits from everones childhood.Well worth an hour or so to indulge yourself. The shop is reasonable as is the cafe.

An interesting place to visit. Toys, games, memorabilia, coins and notes, outdoor toys and artefacts from decades past. Well presented and worth a visit.

Fantastic museum east of Cardigan. Full of memories of times when I was young and care free. Very knowledgeable owner who, amongst other things ran a Toy shop and painted Aeroplanes. Easy place to spend a couple of hours and have a cup of tea.

Lovely collection of childhood toys that will bring back loads of memories. Cute little shop too. Small but quirky little place. Also has a café.

Lovely place to visit. A private collection lovingly collated over many years. The owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Worth every penny.

A small but perfectly formed toy museum! The quiz got all of us going around in circles trying to find the various objects! The owners were very hospitable and full of information. It was a horrible wet day when we visited but if certainly brightened our mood! A very enjoyable few hours.

An ad-hoc visit and worth the £5 each entry fee for the nostalgic effect. Run by a friendly couple and housed in a number of outbuildings with each section housing a specific subject. Go for the curiosity and interest of rousing old memories and the odd giggle or gasp perhaps. Yes, we really were that racist with how we presented... More

Think I enjoyed it as much if not more than kids but definitely worth a visit. Nice welcome. Great collection and some good games to keep the little ones entertained.
