Was interesting seeing the old toys. Was a bit disappointed as there wasnt as much to see. There was only three rooms with toys in. It only took 30mins at looking round then we left. Wasnt allowed to take photos. Anne Marie

This is interesting. Small selection of old toys, particularly liked the well furnished dolls house. However there were only two rooms and it did cost £3.50 for an adult. It only took about twenty minutes to look around.More
