The Bassett-Lowke Archive at Brighton Toy and Model Museum is currently in storage and not available for viewing.

The museum's plan is to preserve the archive in its current relatively-undisturbed state until it can be the subject of a proper and full digitisation project that will make the archive fully available to researchers and the general public in digital form.
