Located on Trafalgar Street, just a 2-minute walk from Brighton railway station it is the ideal location if you’re looking to explore Brighton.

Founded in 1991, the earliest exhibits date back to the 18th century but much of the exhibits focus on the golden age of toy making in the twentieth century so keep an eye for ones you may recognise and remember from your own childhood! The museum is situated in the early Victorian arches beneath Brighton railway station and is the perfect place to take your family. There are lots of restaurants and cafes within walking distance so why not make a day out of it!

Toys - did you know?

Toys have been around for a long, long time – stone yo-yos were found to be used in Greece all the way back in 1000BC! The oldest toy found on British soil, a carving of an animal, was found near Stonehenge and is thought to be 2000 years old.
