Pollock’s Toy Museum – London, England
First open to the public in 1956, Pollock’s Toy Museum in London’s Fitzrovia district displays primarily toys from the Victorian era in six rooms across two adjoining stone buildings.
The Museum’s namesake, Benjamin Pollock, created many of the English toy theatre items on display. Other toy-related objects in the museum include vintage board games, puppets, wax dolls, and marbles.
The museum also includes a small toy shop.
Update: Pollock’s Toy Museum announced in January 2023 that it was closing its location on Scala Street in London. The museum owners are looking for a new property to house the collection.
Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
