As said before,this is an idiosyncratic museum of moving toys and models. Very interesting on several levels. The grandchildren loved the moving tableaux and spent over an hour being entertaining..

There is as far as I know no other museum like this. It is quirky, slightly spooky, amusing and educational. Some of the exhibits are definitely not politically correct but they reflect the time when they were made. The visit takes at least 90 minutes to fully enjoy all of the tableaux and videos that are also available

Exceeded our expectations and enjoyed by group of mixed ages as a most interesting museum or collection. Language is not an issue as watching the movement of the creations. You follow the route then when one exhibit stops, the next automatically starts. Something fascinating about the humour and detail of the human and animal creations.
