I smiled, and shed a few tears due to fond memories, during my visit. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would definitely recommend that anyone visiting Callander should make a point of going to see this toy collection. The couple who run it were most welcoming and took time to chat and answer any questions. The best £3 (entrance... More

Like many toy museums they have tried to fit in their wonderful collection into a space that is far too small. This it is almost possible to see everything clearly and taking memorable photos seems to be out of the question. The effect is therefore overwhelming and our interest quickly waned. But don't let me put you off your visit,... More

The toy museum was excellent, such a variety of toys and well displayed. The old couple working in the shop were lovely!

The Hamilton toy collection is on Main street just opposite the Co op and between the Crags Hotel & The Dalair House Hotel. Looks like a small shop at fist but goes back further than you think. lots of classic toys to see but do not miss the small door on the right hand of the shop where the older... More

A delightful collection of toys, you can't help but find yourself saying 'I had one of those' The entry fee is minimal and its a delightful way to spend a couple of hours.

This is the place where you go to remember childhood 50-60 years ago. We spent our whole visit saying remember that. What fun.

What a lovely surprise the museum was. I visited the museum with my 6 year old twins on a rainy afternoon. I was short of ideas and thought it would kill an hour. We were there for 2! The shop was also excellent. I bagged a scooby doo annual and an animal book for a pound each. All the toys... More

We liked the jumble sale approach, It made you search out memories long forgotten. The shop part is a bit nurdy, a bit Big Bang Theory. Think Sheldon, Howard, Leonard and Raj. The comment about the staff, we didn't experience rudeness. They just told us about the layout of the place which is a converted terraced house and let us... More

The range of old toys on display brought back some wonderful childhood memories. I could have spent all day looking at the displays. Well worth a visit for kids of all ages.
