About

This internationally acclaimed museum contains one of the finest collections of antique dolls and toys in Britain. Numbering over 2000 exhibits dating from circa 2000 BC to circa 1945, it was formed from the private doll and toy collection started by the Munday family in the 1960s. The collection has been widely exhibited on the BBC and ITV and includes antique German and French Bisque dolls, teddy bears, model  "steam" trains, tinplate vehicles, dolls houses, old puzzles and games and many rare and unusual playthings of days gone by. For anyone interested in history or antiques, the Lilliput Museum should be a "must visit" on your itinerary.
