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.

We have had some excellent Trip Advisor reviews reporting how well our PPE is working, and how safe people feel in the museum.

To protect our volunteers and visitors, we will continue to ask people to wear masks when entering the museum after the 27th January 2022.
Thank you for your support..
