Category:London Toy and Model Museum
The London Toy and Model Museum (21/23 Craven Hill, London W2 3EN) opened in 1982, and closed circa 1999.
The museum occupied several floors of a residential building, which then required extensive refit work to make it compatible with accessibility and fire regulations. The museum was sold to Fujita Corporation in 1989 who invested heavily in the refit (which commenced in 1994), but the museum found it difficult to survive as a going concern.
Eventually the collection was broken up and sold, with many of the pieces going to Japan, and the building turned into residential flats.
