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.

This was an interesting way to spend an hour, and brought back many memories. It is more suitable for adults than children. Montacute House is within walking distance and I would recommend that you combine the two attractions.

Spent about an hour walking around all the exhibits. Found it really interesting and there is such a fast amount of work gone into it

Found this place by accident and loved it. Quirky is the right word for the whole collection of TV memorabilia. From the 1950s westerns, Watch with Mother, Dr Who, Star Trek and Gerry Anderson productions the collection includes games, props, magazines, books etc. A wonderful...More
