“Whimsical wonder”
Review of Toy Museum

Toy Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A wonderful conglomeration of old and new. Combination antique exhibit, toy shop, book shop with an art gallery annex. A dollar can go a longer way here than anywhere else since I was 10.
Without doubt the most distinctive commercial establishment you are apt to find.

This little store is sweet and worthy of a little time. The owner is quite a character and brings thoughts of someone who still honors the magical world of children. You'll find all sorts of little delights in this shop, old and creaky as it is. Children are mesmorized by the little things they can buy that of another time. Adults are transported back to their own youth and even beyond sometimes. It isn't loud, it isn't electronic, it isn't expensive. It is a place to get a little lost for time.

When we are lucky enough to be on the Island in season, the Toy Museum is our first stop (after stocking up at McDonoughs Market). Mary Rose has put an incredible collection together and it's easy to lose yourself for hours and still not see everything! $5 goes a long way. From beads to books to Mary's beautiful original artwork to the little garden, there truly is something to put a smile on everyone's face. Mary works the register herself and that just enhances the whole experience. Everyone needs a little Mary in their life!

You have to visit this place..adults and children. Toys, art supplies, books and Mary Rose's ( the owner) paintings. And most of the things you find here you won't see in mainland shops. This is unique.

Walked to this little treasure located on the main street across from the ferry line. Lots of old toys to look at, but so small that I kept bumping into people. Tons of small, cheap toys for the kids to purchase, Art gallery out back, also room with jewelry for sale.
