  • As soon as I started looking at the exhibits, I thought, "This is a fun place! The museum was thrilled. There are a lot of toys that make you feel nostalgic. I enjoyed looking at the exhibits one by one and imagining the history behind them. It is recommended for doll house lovers. There were japanese hina dolls and Bunraku dolls. I didn't use it, but I wanted to take a break in the café and take a closer look. I enjoyed the exhibition, so I was looking forward to the shop, but i guess the expectations were too high. It is a museum which I want to visit again.

  • We took a class of Year Ones yesterday. They had such a brilliant time looking around the museum and especially loved the pirate display up at the moment. Our Spotlight session was absolutely brilliant and the 2 members of staff doing it went above and beyond to make the children’s experience amazing. The cafe here is also really good! Really close to transport links. A great trip for sure!!
  • Great museum for little kids (and big kids to remember your childhood) lots of historic toys and games from 19c through to present. Including a great collection of 70s/80s/90s stuff like early consoles. Good holiday events for kids (check website) we went to Pirate storytelling in conjunction with a great pirate exhibition. There is a cafe and also picnic area in basement. Local park also available if you need fresh air during the visit. Easy to reach from Cambridge Heath on overground or Bethnal Green Underground.
