About Us

Brighton Toy and Model Museum is a treasure trove of toys and models.

Step into a world of toys and models that extends over four thousand square feet of floorspace, under four of the early Victorian arches which support Brighton Railway Station. Founded in 1991, the Museum has over ten thousand toys and models in its archive. We have toys from as early as the mid 18th century, however, most of our exhibits focus on the golden age of toy making during the first half of the Twentieth Century. The displays have toys of all types including priceless model train collections and many period, antique toys from Great Britain and all over Europe and the U.S.

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

On leaving Brighton Station, leave via the exit on your right, then circle around immediately to your right so that you’re facing the overpass at the top of Queens Road. Walk down Trafalgar Street, under the overpass and look out for the white "Visitor Information" sign, on the left.
