The Collectors Market

In the museum foyer, we have always had a selection of second hand items in our display cases which we sell on behalf of other people.

These range from ‘well loved’ Dinky and Matchbox cars to various makes and scales of model railway items, to board games and toys right up to rare items, and large scale models.


While we can’t hope to list everything that is for sale on this page (the stock changes on a weekly basis) we can certainly feature some of the more interesting things for you to admire, or even consider buying…

If you would like to find out more information about any of the items listed here then please contact us.

We will try to keep this page as up to date as possible but PLEASE, if you are interested in purchasing anything you see here, get in touch with us first to ascertain if the item is still available before making a special trip to see us.
If there is nothing listed below, that doesn’t mean we don’t have anything for sale. Our shop is always well stocked with a variety of toys and models but only items of special interest will be mentioned here.

Terms and Conditions of Sales

Please note, items sold from the collectors market are done so on an ‘As Seen’ basis. While the museum will make every attempt to list items accurately before sale, including any defects, we cannot guarantee items and are unable to offer refunds once an item is purchased.

Similarly, the items on sale are often old and we cannot guarantee that they would meet current health and safety standards. They are sold as ‘collectors items’ rather than toys and are therefore generally not suitable for children.
