A unique collection of toys and merchandizing from the 1970s. On loan from collector, Rob Brown, our exhibition includes examples of many of the most popular toys of the seventies, such as the Wombles, Sindy, The Muppets and Playmobil to name but a few. Also included is a range of iconic toys from sci-fi films and television programmes including Star Wars, Star Trek, Buck Rogers and Dr Who which are sure to evoke nostalgic memories for many.
Come and revisit your childhood! Bring your children and grand children to show them the toys you had as a child.
There is a free family trail to follow through the museum if you have the time as well as plenty of fun activities in our education room; all designed to keep the children entertained. Colouring in, crafts and many other things to do. ‘Step into the picture’ as a highwayman, a visitor to the Angel Inn or have fun dressing up as characters from Star Wars and posing with Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper or even Chewbacca!
