Set in two old houses just behind Goodge Street station, this is a jewel. More toys and games than you can imagine in such a relatively small space. Steep stairs so not good for those with mobility issues.

Small little cozy toy museum, felt like a little gem on my discoveries. Well stocked, well maintained. Reasonably priced entry fee. They have a toy shop attached to the museum. One certainly will learn a thing or two about the history of toys. Credit cards...More

If you are genuine vintage toys and dolls enthusiast, this quirky little museum is a must to visit. It's amazing how many interesting items can be crammed into such a small place. The shop is also worth browsing.

£7 wasted. Look round the shop for free and save yourself the nightmares from the scary old dolls which are 80% of the display. One subbuteo box, a small meccano set and a few matchbox cars is about as modern as it gets.

Dark and cold experience on a snowy day. Difficult to read information and see the toy exhibits as it was quite dark and many areas badly or not lit. Disappointing experience and not worth £7 admission. Gift shop was a little better

Doesn't look very big from the outside but there are a number of rooms and many displays. Very interesting especially if you are over 50! Housed in an interesting old building. Could do with a bit of tlc in parts.

We went to the museum on a winter afternoon. I have never visited a museum whose lighting is so appalling that many of the items on display are barely visible on the shadowy shelves. We looked at the ceiling and were astonished to see that...More

We found it by chance walking around Euston and Bloomsbury. I think just looking at the toys and the children's attractions is quite a welcome sight when you are walking around central London

Yes it's a little rough around the edges, but that is a, part of its charm and b, that's why the entry fee is around £6 and not £12! It is room after room of the most wonderful, memorable and exciting treats a museum can...More
