Enter one of the four early Victorian arches under the station and see over ten thousand toys and models, including priceless model train collections. Established in 1991, Brighton Toy and Model Museum showcases collections from the last 100 years, including delights made by the world’s top toy makers.

A highlight of this nostalgic trip through memory lane has to be the huge detailed working ’00′ model layout based on the Sussex countryside. I can see why people choose to collect model railways as a hobby – they’re fantastic and so much fun.

Everywhere you look, an old toy or model is never to far. Lego and Meccano is used in an out of this world way – with some brilliantly put together buildings a vehicles.

An original Punch and Judy booth and old-fashioned penny arcade takes visitors back to the seaside of old. And even a working ‘mutoscope’ with early photographic animation can be viewed and enjoyed at the museum. The entrance of the museum is designed to look like a railway station platform. There you can find brochures and a range of free exhibits like a huge radio-controlled Spitfire fighter plane, a motorised Meccano Ferris wheel and much much more.
