Pollock's Toy Museum, London: 5 reviews and 11 photos

Despite the name, this museum is not a place I would take children, definitely not small children.Pollocks Toy Museum is a museum from a collector for collectors( and those who take collectors to London). The museum spreads over two houses, all the rooms are extremely small and narrow, the stairs are steep and the staircases again very narrow. Very difficult for someone with walking problems.
Every corner of this museum is full of toys, I don't think there is any type of old toy not shown here.Teddy bears, paper dolls, cardboard games and many, many others. The name comes from Benjamin Pollock,who had made Victorian toy theatres. In the shop attached to the museum you can buy reprints of these toy theatres and remakes of other Victorian toys.I've been there a few times, even though I am not a collector , and I really like it. There is a lot of atmosphere in this old place.
