Pollock's Toy Museum, London

(3.1/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • I first visited here as a child twenty years ago - it was wonderful to return with my own family, and it was just as magical as I remember it! Beautiful, unique toys - many handmade - and patient, kno...  more »
  • Piccolino, in two houses side by side, steep and crooked, fascinating not because the collection and for its layout, a kind of lifeboat for an age that no longer exists in the city out there, through toys. Fascinating history of the production of small theatres in paper that is a bit at the origin of the collection. After the tour you can stop in the little toy store, with some little gem to buy. Children should be taken to understand the collection, it is not immediately easy to qualify for them, it takes the whole family to get lost among the dolls, doll houses, buildings, meccano, trains, cars in spring ... We visited in a morning where we were on our own. In fact the path is enjoyable if not a lot of people. Thank you, thank you.

  • We came across this place by accident and were fascinated by the toys in the shop, many of which were from my childhood. We bought quite a few gifts in there. We paid the £6 entry fee to the museum an...  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.
