  • interesting ..stocked full of old cars and toys that brought back our childhood....good place to browse during the showers!!  more »
  • This was an unexpected find. The shop is interesting with some unusual stuff, and the antiquey toys were lovely. I particularly enjoyed the toy cars.  more »
  • Well worth a visit one of three toy museums in Cornwall this one in Tintagel is run by Geoff Cann & he has a great knowledge of vintage toys!  more »

  • A nice curiosity to pop in and see. Was hoping for a wider range of eras to see but what was there was still very nice. Be aware that the aisles are quite tight though - don't knock anything over.
  • More shop than museum and pretty unimpressed to see them selling newly produced golliwogs. The staff member running the shop was unwilling to engage with how racist this is. Would advise avoiding.
  • Utterly appalled to see that this shop sells new golliwog toys. These toys are racist caricatures of people of colour, and are widely considered to be discriminatory and racist. The shop owner did not care a jot that they could be considered racist. This shop - it is more shop than 'museum' - is a racist embarrassment.
  • collectible items in the toy museum, some for sale, some not. Great mix of toys, models, crystals, jewellery, postcards, pictures - it goes on and on. i will say that it is more of a shop with a museum.
  • Quaint shop/museum with so many diecast model vehicles on display . To certain generations this will bring back memories of childhood toys . Also there are many of the collectors vehicles rally, racing, farm editions produced for collectors. There is also a closed off display of an old toy shop . Whilst described as a museum their is also much for sale from current toy vehicles to collectors items. The shop is all on one level with access via a small step outside. Plenty of parking in the nearby pay and display. With the castle , Old Post Office, King Arthers display and special shops there is plenty to do in Tintagel.
