This museum would be excellent if you were accompanied by a bright 8 year old, but the themed displays (work, dolls, activity toys etc) were lightweight for adult visitors. There was little additional material (such as social historical background) available, and not much of a sense of how toys in general had developed over the ages.
The best bits for children were (a) the opportunity to climb a “real” chimney and (b) the Victorian classroom.
Not worth a long journey but good for a short visit as an adjunct to the House (1660s; closed on the morning we visited) or tearoom.
Overall a bit of a disappointment.
