THE LILLIPUT MUSEUM of ANTIQUE DOLLS & TOYS


The LILLIPUT Doll & Toy MUSEUM

I have recently returned from a visit to the Isle of Wight, where we came across the wonderful "Lilliput Museum of Antique Dolls and Toys", in Brading, near Sandown.  There were also a few Dolls Houses there too, so you are in for a treat!
There are over 2,000 items in the Museum, so obviously, here are just a few of them for you to see!

There is also a little shop on the premises where you can buy dolls house furniture and dolls.  The Museum, which was created in 1974, has been featured on the BBC ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, and is a private collection belonging to the Munday family.
