Pollock's Toy Museum, London
(3.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Pollock's Toy Museum is a small museum in London, England.It was started in 1956 in a single attic room at 44 Monmouth Street, near Covent Garden, where Pollock's Toy Theatres were also sold. As the enterprise flourished, other rooms were taken over for the museum and the ground floor became a toyshop. By 1969 the collection had outgrown the Monmouth Street premises and Pollock's Toy Museum moved to 1 Scala Street, with a museum shop on the ground floor to contribute to its support. The museum continues today to be run by the grandson of the founder Marguerite Fawdry.

  • This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I found it very interesting - it is an unusual collection of toys in two old houses. You have to pay £6 to get in, which we thought was reasonable. There are...  more »
  • What a surprise. Not free, but inexpensive and packed with stuff from nostalgic games of my youth to a 3000 year old Egyptian toy mouse! All jammed in to cabinets, somehow it makes sense... I spent a ...  more »

  • Definitely worth a visit! Really quirky, and atmospheric. The doll room is very sinister but you'll probably want to spend most of your time in here!
  • Lovely Quirky eccentric place, two old buildings crammed with historical and nostalgic toys.
  • Really cool but can be a bit creepy if you go in when it is not busy and you go in alone. The toys collection is mesmerising abd being the old style 1700s and 1800s houses is good enough for the trip itself
  • Great little shop, haven't tried the museum yet, but will be back. The shop assistant was really friendly and patient with my daughter, showing her the great toys on offer, and playing the amazing mechanical music box.
  • This is probably one of the creepiest places I have ever been. If you're not a fan of china dolls then this could be a place of nightmares for you. That being said they have a wide selection of classic toys and it's a good way to spend an hour or so looking at toys from the past. Even the structure of the building itself is interesting and fun to wander around.
