Virtual Museum

Our Virtual Museum is a digitally interactive platform that offers a glimpse into the museum’s permanent exhibitions from the Collectables and Childhood Favourites levels. Through a 360 virtual environment, you will be introduced to a wide collection of vintage toys from over 40 countries dating as far back to the 1840s. 

In the Collectables level, you can discover familiar Traditional Folk Games and gain an insight on the development of toys throughout the Golden Era. Let our virtual museum also allow you to travel back in time and delve deep into the narratives behind some of our Historical and Political inspired toys as well as some of the social causes championed by toymakers in the past. Toys served a greater purpose than being just mere playthings!

At the Childhood Favourites level, you will view some of our rarest and highly sought after vintage Classic Companions which were carefully handsewn and handcrafted by master craftsmen from around the world. Here you will also find toys that came from a time when entertainment was quite different in the form of puppetry – Favourite Entertainments – Puppetry!
