I had heard about Pollock's Toy Museum for a while and I was very eager to at last have a chance to visit the venue. It was certainly intriguing to behold; an entire medium size building that had been transformed into a rabbit warren of...More

Doesn't look very big from the outside but there are a number of rooms and many displays. Very interesting especially if you are over 50! Housed in an interesting old building. Could do with a bit of tlc in parts.

We went to the museum on a winter afternoon. I have never visited a museum whose lighting is so appalling that many of the items on display are barely visible on the shadowy shelves. We looked at the ceiling and were astonished to see that...More

We found it by chance walking around Euston and Bloomsbury. I think just looking at the toys and the children's attractions is quite a welcome sight when you are walking around central London

Yes it's a little rough around the edges, but that is a, part of its charm and b, that's why the entry fee is around £6 and not £12! It is room after room of the most wonderful, memorable and exciting treats a museum can...More

Popped in to see if it would be a memory lane but it didn't grab me that way. It was packed with so much to see but I would have lie some detail on some of the exhibits. Lots of dolls and play theatres but...More

Don't wait to have completed your must-see tour in London, thinking that you have now to scratch the bottom and look for the unusual and the minor. If you just feel to go back to the enchantment and wonder of your childhood, visit this surprising...More

Mainly English toys (of course), but also tings from The Commonwealth, like India. You climb stairs up and down, peeping into small rooms loaded with toys. Many dolls. The building itself is worth seeing from inside.

We visited this museum as part of the London pass. Fascinating place, with lots to see. Not very large but a trip down memory lane. Small gift area.

Decided to visit Pollocks having previously lived in London and done all of the 'usual' museums. The exhibits and the museum itself are a trip back in time. No fancy interactive video displays here. It's essentially two adjoining London town houses with various old toys...More
