  • We visited here with 2 year old grandchild on a very wet Sunday having eschewed a visit to London Zoo due to the weather. I think you have to be accompanied by a child to be allowed in. Entry is free ...  more »
  • Arrived on the bus as there was a tube strike. Bus stop right out side. Museum large and clean. The displays were ok, but most behind glass cabinets and some toys with no labels. There seemed to be a ...  more »
  • It's not as flashy as some museums, for which I was grateful: good labelling & erudite background information gave the prominence to the exhibits themselves. Sunken in the downstairs is a very good co...  more »

  • This is a really fun museum with plenty to do, its very child friendly and there's encouragement for kids to play with various displays (bring some 20p pieces.) For adults, walk around the two floors of cabinets and exhibits while reminiscing about your childhood playthings. The cafe is nice, not the cheapest but there's some tasty snacks and hot food, plus a child's selection. The gift shop is cool, small but well formed. Its easy to get here, just a short walk from the tube or bus stop. A fun afternoon for the family or just if you're a big kid.
  • The best museum in east london. I was taken here by my dad when i was ten. Loved it then and i still love it. Returned here with my children and recently with my gran-daughter. We had the best time on the treasure trail. We came back again on the Sunday as well.
  • What a fun and engaging museum to visit as a family! We find toys we as adults remembered, alongside things that our children know and love. We loved the way it was arranged by themes and we really enjoyed the special exhibition about games that was on while we were there.
  • A relatively small but well presented museum of toys and games. There is something for everyone, with perhaps the only group not well catered for is the teenager, though they may enjoy seeing the toys of their parents childhood. There is plenty of activities for young children (dress ups, sand-pit, making your own masks etc) that will keep them occupied. There is a nice enough cafe in the venue, and the architecture of the building is of some interest.
  • I highly recommend this museum, personally we went there for a date, then grabbed lunch at a nearby cafe. I enjoyed my company and the museum itself was great. P.s the was a Harry Potter section which brought back a ton of good childhood memories.
