After visiting Montacute House, we decided to have a little look at the village and found this quirky little museum and cafe. We wandered in and were immediately transported back in time surrounded by toys and games from our childhood and even our parent's childhoods....More

Great to see all the toys we remembered from ours and our children's childhood, a good trip down memory lane. The halloween attractions were fun. Lots to see. However, the entry fee is a bit steep.

Halloween additions meant our 8 year old was too scared to see it all. I found it a bit creepy too! And it isn't big, especially for £25 for 4 of us. Was more of a wierd collection than a museum. Brought back some memories...More

This is a gem of a museum and for anyone who remembers the classic shows such as The Saint, The Invisible Man and Bonanza it takes you back through the timewarp and fond memories. The museum is in a shed type structure and has clearly...More
