The Toy Museum. is situated in the tunnel underneath Brighton Station. It is
a wonderland of period children’s toys.
Not only for children! The museum boasts an eclectic, electric mix, mostly
from the 1950’s.which will also appeal to adults especially those who were young then.
For a short time, and a few pounds one can revel in a golden period of life
before Lego; computers games and colour tv channels became the norm. You will
see another age bought to life.
The main part of the exhibits are a grand model railway this is in two parts
joined together by a tunnel and each half depicts a different model of
Several model trains, HO gauge (I think they are), programmed to work,
simultaneously-pulling into stations and traversing the model countryside. It
will especially appeal to those who had a model railway of their own and longed for a bigger track.
Other exhibits include a dream Meccano model, and other mechanical working
Objects, joined together by tiny nuts and bolts ; Lotts Bricks and a large
collection of model boats and (Dinky) cars.
This is the stuff that dreams are made of, rather like an imaginary dream
factory, so enjoy the visit.
