Pollock's Toy Museum is a charity run by volunteers and is reliant on supporters of the museum to continue to exist. If you are able to donate to save the museum it will be appreciated.
Due to a change in circumstances regarding the ownership of the buildings, we have not been able to negotiate a sustainable future for the museum collection at its current premises. We regret to announce that Pollock's Toy Museum is no longer open at No.1 Scala Street, London W1T 2HL.
The famous and much-loved collection of toy theatres, elderly teddy bears, dolls, games and toys is temporarily in storage. We are looking for another long-term home for the museum, where we can welcome visitors back again soon.
We have already started exploring possibilities for a secure future for the museum and collection, in a location that will preserve its character while providing more space. For this, major capital funding in cash or in kind will be needed. In the short term, we have expenses to cover and limited resources, so contributions at any level are very welcome, and can be made on here.
We are also seeking storage space at a favourable rate (probably a total of about 400 square feet) to work from as we raise funds.
The museum will still be active during this transition period – follow us on social media (@pollockstoymuseum @pollocksmuseum) and watch out for our online Pollock's Mini-Museum, to see featured toys, articles and practical projects drawn from our archives. Support for this from your purchases and participation will help us grow.
