What a wonderful place to spend a few hours. The railway side has lots of full-size artifacts but the best bits are the huge working model railway, all in 3-rail tinplate with some very rare items. Also a superb diorama with a military theme. Inside...More

A large stately house, a wonderful old garden but this location advertises as a museum. There is virtually no comentary on the collected material displayed. Matchboxes, Barbie dolls, clothing, books, trains, modern James Bond collectables, Enid Blyton Noddy books and reading aids, all together in...More

Visited today with several young children. The prospect of a toy museum seemed appropriate for young kids. NOT SO!!! Staff were rude and unhelpful. There is ample signage telling visitors all the things they can’t touch, go near or enter. However, despite all the visible...More

An amazing piece of Australian history. The outstanding toy collection alone will evoke happy memories - and others longing for lost toys....each room is full of toys from Barbie’s, 007, Star Wars, dolls, teddy bears, model shops and trains. Even Flash Gordon is there. If...More

My kids love this place. It's a fantastic collection of toys, trains and everything else. If you could sneak in without having to interact with any of the snooty, condescending and pompous people who own, operate or work here it would be awesome. It's overpriced...More
