Pollock's Toy Museum

Pollock's Toy Museum at Scala Street in London is a new gem discovered recently. Non-English speakers, children and the disabled must hate this museum because it's everything a museum shouldn't be..... the staircases are tiny, winding, funny tagged on stairs everywhere with packed rooms, and a smattering of old, faded information cards in stuffy English. It really is a dreadful museum, it will never make any money (charging £5 for adults to walk around 6 tiny, confused rooms is surprising) and in the centre of London I was lucky enough to have the whole place to myself. Anyway, I did some drawings and scared myself silly in a room full of china-faced dollies.
