The museum is excellent, I am both a collector and dealer of comic book related items and the museum had some of the most amazing things I have seen. Loads of DC items I had never seen before and will struggle to see anywhere else but thats not to mention so many other cool items and has a little something... More

I visited the museum as part of a coach party visiting Callander. The collection is huge, with dolls, model soldiers, tin toys, teddy bears, die cast vehicles, model railways, games, books, slot cars, TV and film toys. Toys from Victorian times to the present day. I found my doll in the museum which I was given when I was 3... More

This is an incredible private collection to suit children from 5 to 95 years old. Excellent. It is easily discovered on the Main Street.

We spent a short time in the museum which has a very large collection of every toy known. Felt that it was a little too packed in to appreciate some of the items, but understand that space is a consideration. You will probably see toys that will bring back happy childhood memories.

While staying in Aberfoyle a couple of days we nipped in to this Toy Museum on the way to our Hotel well worth your time popping in for a look. I suddenly got swept up in nostalgia. I could go on and on and on about this place, you won't be dissapointed and well worth the £3 to look round.... More

I must have driven past this inauspicious little shop a hundred times or more, over the years. It's unassuming shop front hides away in the quiet end of Callander's Main Street, almost hidden by a perception filter, just waiting to show itself to you when it feels you are ready. This week, apparently, I was finally ready. "Look - a... More

Came across this today while visiting Callander for the day, Wasn't too sure what to expect but I was actually very surprised, it was very Interesting and even our 6 year old loved it. After speaking to the owner she told us the family had been collecting the toys for over 70 years!! It's well worth a visit. It's £3... More

This collection is incredible - so much crammed into a relatively small space! I especially appreciate the shop - such a huge variety and all of the Hamilton family have such expertise! Highly reccomend!
