The price of admission not only allows visitors to take as long as they like to see the Museum and return as many times as they like during the same day, it also includes a voluntary donation which helps raise funds for maintenance and renewal of exhibits and allows us to collect a Gift Aid reimbursement from the government as long as you can provide us with some basic details when buying your tickets.

Special Multiday Tickets are also being made available for students or researchers working on art/design/engineering coursework or projects. Please call for details.

Admission to the foyer area containing the Shop, Visitor Information Point and the “Glamour of Brighton” exhibition is free, and the Museum welcomes visitors to this space without obligation.


Brighton Toy and Model Museum is underneath Brighton Railway Station, set into the arches below the station forecourt.

If you are coming from the train station, turn right as you leave building and then circle around to your left. Walk down Trafalgar Street and look out for the white “Visitor Information” sign, on the left side of the street just before you leave the cover of the overpass.

This short clip shows you exactly how to find us.


Visitors are welcome to photograph or video the exhibits under two conditions. 1. No flash is used and 2. The resulting photos or videos are used for non commercial purposes only.

If you would like to come and photograph the objects here with a view to publishing them either on-line or in print please contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss your requests on a case by case basis.

Wheelchair Access

Though situated in a Victorian building, adaptations have been made to enable wheelchair access to almost every public area. If you need any help, simply ask any member of staff who will be pleased to assist you.

One of our toilets has been adapted to facilitate visitors with extra needs. Just advise us upon arrival if anyone in your party has mobility issues.


While the Museum does not have its own car park, this map shows the car parks within easy walking distance.

School Trips and Group/Community visits

School party visits can be themed to your particular National Curriculum requirements, and teachers can visit free of charge to discuss a plan before the visit. Find out more on our Education and Schools page or contact Brighton Toy and Model Museum for further information.
