Goole Museum’s Christmas exhibition, Toy Tales, is a chance to take a trip down memory lane and view toys from the past.
The festive exhibition will provide museum visitors with a glimpse of vintage toys and will be open until 7 January, 2017. There are dolls, Dinky toys, train sets and Meccano models, and the highlight of the exhibition is a large, finely detailed doll’s house. There are also things for the little ones to play with and games for the big kids too.
Snaith Toy Museum has loaned some of its many toys and it is hoped that visitors will enjoy this chance to reflect on their childhood and their own favourite toys. Museum curator Debbie Hardy said: ‘I am delighted to have worked with Richard and Rosemary Morley from Snaith Toy Museum.
‘Although we have only been able to show a small fraction of their large collection, our visitors will surely enjoy this trip down toy memory lane. Bring the kids along and amaze them with tales of amusing yourself and playing outside without the need for electricity or parental guidance – they may not believe you!’
The exhibition is on display at Goole Museum on Carlisle Street. You can visit for free between 10am and 5pm Tuesday to Friday, between 10am and 7pm on Wednesdays and between 9am and 4pm on Saturdays.
Please note the museum closes for lunch from 12pm until 12.30pm (1.30pm until 2pm on Wednesdays).
