“Bit expensive”

Montacute TV Radio Toy Museum
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Montacute
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This museum is a bit like stepping into the Tardis, there is a lot more to it than you think. Lots of strange things relating to TV and Radio, dummies dressed in costumes from programmes, old televisions, games, toys and old radio magazines. There is music themed for each area but it is all a bit random and would be a tight squeeze if a few people were in together. Thought it was expensive for what is there.

A nice Elizabethan house with a warm feeling, it is hard to believe that it was essentially built as a "holiday home" , plenty to see with good informative staff in attendance.
Whilst the layout and content of the gardens is good, serious attention is needed regarding the floral beds, obviously there are not enough "volunteers" so more formal staff are needed.

A private collection of old radios, TVs and related toys is an example of a collection that has got out of control, many items you never new existed, board games and toys from TV programs long forgotten and a history of TV and marketing saved for nostalgia. I like higgledy piggledy museums like this, however I feel it could do with sorting and updating with more modern TV items to keep the younger generation happy as our 10 year old was losing interest. Friendly staff, pleasant tea room and well stocked shop to browse are all plus points. We feel it was a bit overpriced for what they have to offer.

From outside looks very small but step inside and you will be surprised. Lots of exhibits, old tv's, radios, toys, games. Also, some props and costumes from film and tv. Well
worth a visit.
