    Location

    Brighton Toy and Model Museum is underneath Brighton Railway Station, set into the arches below the station forecourt. 

    The two parallel sets of railings in front of Marks and Spencer surround the sunken entrance to Trafalgar Street. Walk down Trafalgar Street and look out for the white "Visitor Information" sign, on the left.

    Wheelchair access

    Though situated in a Victorian building, adaptations have been made to enable wheelchair access to almost every public area.

    One of our toilets has likewise been adapted. Please advise us in advance if anyone in your party is a wheelchair user.

    Parking

    The map shows three car parks within easy walking distance.

    School Trips and Group/Community visits

    School party visits can be specially tailored to your particular National Curriculum requirements, and teachers can visit free of charge to discuss a plan before the visit. Find out more on our "Education and Schools" page or contact the Museum for further information.

    The Museum is very popular with schools. If you're thinking of visiting as part of a group, we'd advise phoning ahead to make sure that your group visit doesn't clash with another school trip or group.
