Scenes of yesteryear - the Pullman car as seen at the Brighton Toy and Model Museum

SEND sessions at Brighton Toy Museum on Some Saturdays

The museum opens one hour earlier than usual for families to enjoy in a calmer, quieter and more relaxed environment.

The early opening will take place on the following Saturdays, where the museum will open at 10am for SEND families:

Saturday 4th February
Saturday 4th March
Saturday 1st April

From 11am the museum will open to all, but you are welcome to stay for as long as you like.

i-go card holders already get a fantastic discount on their entry tickets, along with one free carer entry, but on these special SEND sessions card holders will receive an extra 10% discount. You don’t need to book in advance, just turn up on the day and make sure you take your Compass Card with you. To see the general i-go offer visit our offer’s page here.

To help prepare for your visit you can watch this short video, showing what you can expect.

About Brighton Toy and Model Museum

Visiting the museum is an immersive visual experience that plunges the visitor into a different world, as seen through the eyes of artists and designers responsible for the Golden Age of British and European toy making.
