Toy Stories - Exhibition

24 June - 10 February 2018 *EXTENDED RUN!*

Remember your favourite toy?  This colourful exhibition will have you thinking "I had one of those!" as toys from 1900 - 1999 take over the museum.  Early toys had either been expensive, miniature works of art; or home-made from whatever spare materials could be found.  Mass-production in the twentieth century meant that toys were easier and cheaper to make, and more affordable to buy.  From rag dolls to Pokemon, toys have evolved over the years but their charm remains the same.  Must-haves, such as Star Wars figures,  Care Bears, Muffin the Mule, and Gameboys can be found in the exhibiton alongside personal and much-loved favourites.
