The Toy Museum at Malta is located in the capital city – Valletta in Republic Street opposite Casa Rosa Piccola which is a beautiful palace owned by the 9th Marquis de Piro, and is the only private palazzo open to the public in Valletta. The Toy Museum spreads over three floors.
The Toy Museum houses a very large and impressive collection of toys from the 1950s onward including model planes, boats, Matchbox cars, farmyard animals, trains and dolls.
This museum was opened by Vincent Brown in 1998 after Brown’s visited a very similar museum in England and actually displays his personal collection accumulated over 30 years. Vincent Brown strongly believes that toys help to recapture memories of childhood, adventures and fun. The unique collection is mostly displayed in glass cabinets and is more suited to nostalgic adults than children who wish to play with the toys.
The experience happens at the very doorstep – once you enter the Museum you are immediately immersed in a vacuum of time. Immediately, you will be able to see some of the impressive collection of model toys that include toy cars from all over the world; tin toys and Matchbox cars.
