Magic Lantern Performances

What happens in the toy museum when the lights go out?


Join us as we shine Magic Lanterns into the hidden corners of the Pollock's Toy Museum collection. What do the puppets and dolls get up to in the dark? This is your chance to experience the museum as you have never seen it before!

For all ages.
