    Brilliant museum documenting the history of childhood and toys through the ages with interactive displays and lots of events. Benugo's cafe on Ground Floor with highchairs and changing facilities.

    Quite a kitschy but a nice walk down memory lane. Try not to go on public holidays - kids galore (as one would expect!). Nice sit down café on ground floor.

    Can easily do this one in an afternoon. Some activities for the kids, lots of memories for the grownups.

    Noisy and energised with all the little ones underfoot but very interesting too. I learned that hipster frames were an NHS throwback. Who knew?

    Great place to visit for a bit of nostalgia, there's lots of toys from different eras, you probably remember playing with as a kid. Lots of interactive things to do. A great day out and for free!
