An amazing little place packed with memories for those of a certain age! Everywhere you look there are dolls and puppets and cars. Totally fascinating

In contrast to the review by -traell1- ... we visited the Hamilton Toy Museum yesterday and could not have had a better experience. Staff were very friendly, talkative and, as you would expect, very knowledgeable in the history of toys. The collection is litierally bursting at the seams with magical nostalgia. I have never seen such a wide variey of old toys and collectables, some of which I had and competely forgotten about and some, as a collector myself, still actually have. There used to be a fantastic place in Glasgow called 'The Crazy House' which is sadly now long gone. This place has that same sort of feel. Well worth a visit. One thing I will say is - as it is so full of things - you may not see everything as it is hidden under, or behind something else. Needs to grow with more space as it deserves to be one of Scotland's best visited attractions. Scotland needs more places like this.

We visited today and the lady and man the In the shop were extremely rude and unwelcoming. They didn't even acknowledge us when we entered the shop and proceeded to talk about a customer who had just been in and how they were surprised he wasn't tempted to buy more!!! They continued to chat to amongst themselves about the possible price of toys. There was an item we were interested in but given their rude attitude and the way they were chatting about other customers we decided to leave and again didn't even get a goodbye despite being the only people in the store!! Would not recommend and would not return

Brilliant trip down memory lane. We saw some wonderful toys that we forgot we ever had! My husband loved seeing all the Action men. Amazing collection - well worth the visit

We hadn’t been to the museum for a few years but as before thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Takes us ages as so much time spent looking and reminiscing about our childhood toys and our sons. Great place friendly owner. Be sure to visit when in Callander.

Outstanding and happy experience, taking me back to the late 60’s and 70’s through the time travel of toys .
Stunning collection and well shown , don’t be fooled by little doorway entry , it leads to a labyrinth of childhood memories .
Shall return for a less rushed visit .

You can’t pass through Callander without a stop at the Toy Museum on the Main Street. It’s jam packed with toys, figures and games from the past decades. Lovely to see so many old games and things I remember from my childhood. And it’s only a couple of quid to get in. It’s great.

What a fantastic find and a great way to spend an hour or so looking at all the collections and recognising the toys you used to play with or wanted.
Friendly and help staff and at £3, well worth it.

This is a great place to while away an hour or so. The collection is £3 each to enter and is so nostalgic. Loads of toys I used to have, or would have liked. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about everything toys. Well worth a visit.
