Brighton Toy and Model Museum is one of the World’s great toy museums.
One hour from London, located in the “artists’ city” of Brighton on Britain’s South Coast, and densely packed into a set of four Victorian cellars under Brighton main terminus station covering four thousand square feet, the museum’s displays draw on a core collection, and guest collections, comprising over twelve thousand items.
Visiting the museum is an immersive visual experience that plunges the visitor into a different world, as seen through the eyes of artists and designers responsible for the Golden Age of British and European toymaking.
Staffed mostly by dedicated volunteers, the museum also carries out nationally and internationally important restoration, research, and digitisation work, and operates a nine thousand page online encyclopaedia and image library used by individuals and organisations, worldwide.
