A Quick Overview of Pollock’s Toy Museum
Pollock's Toy Museum is a small museum in London, England. It was started in 1956 in a single attic room at 44 Monmouth Street, near Covent Garden, where Pollock's Toy Theatres were also sold.
- As the enterprise flourished, other rooms were taken over for the museum and the ground floor became a toyshop.
- By 1969 the collection had outgrown the Monmouth Street premises and Pollock's Toy Museum moved to 1 Scala Street, with a museum shop on the ground floor to contribute to its support.
- The museum continues today to be run by the grandson of the founder Marguerite Fawdry.
