Pollock's Toy Museum & Shop, London

#11 of 19 in Childrens Museums in London
Pollock's Toy Museum is a small museum in London, England.
It was started in 1956 in a single attic room at 44 Monmouth Street, near Covent Garden, above Benjamin Pollock's Toy Shop, where Pollock's Toy Theatres were also sold. As the enterprise flourished, other rooms were taken over for the museum and the ground floor became a toyshop. By 1969 the collection had outgrown the Monmouth Street premises and Pollock's Toy Museum moved to 1 Scala Street, with a museum shop on the ground floor to contribute to its support. The museum continues today to be run by the grandson of the founder Marguerite Fawdry.

  • In many ways we're blessed to live in an age of Lego, and all sorts of other cool toys. Folks in other times had toys that can only be described as 'a bit boring'. Still, very interesting to see all of them in one place, with interesting descriptions. I particularly enjoyed the vitrine full of spaceship toys: all were made a decade or so before the first humans went into space, and therefore have unusual designs. Worth a visit, especially if you have a pal by your side to discuss it with.
  • This quirky little toy shop museum is awesome, it stocks and feels super old school and charming classic toys. i got my son a bear from here a few years ago which he absolutely adored (then lost recently) luckily this seems to be the only place to stock it, so i was able to replace without him realising.
