Welcome

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 guest collections and a core collection of over ten 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 ~9000-page online encyclopedia and image library used by individuals and organisations, worldwide.


The museum reopened after lockdown on Tuesday 28th July, 2020. To comply with social distancing requirements, there is now a one way system around the museum and admission is by pre-booking only. Please click on the link below to book your place.

Non-exempt adults are required to wear face masks when entering the museum.

If you have a museum membership or a complimentary pass, please email info@brightontoymuseum.co.uk, letting us know the date, time and number of visitors, and we will book you in.

We look forward to welcoming you back!
