Attraction Information

Young history buffs in the family? Take your kids to Guildford Museum for an educational day out that won’t cost a thing! This small, local museum will take you on a journey from the time of the Romans, to the age of the Saxons, to the feats of modern history, and you get to enjoy all day with free entry.

Guildford Museum’s smallest visitors always prefer the Childhood Gallery. This colourful exhibition opens a window in time which shows what toys and games Guildford kids used to play with in the past. From an elaborate toy theatre from the 1800s, to an impressively-sized Noah’s Ark, to puzzles and card games - this area is packed with curious artefacts from the history of fun. Want to feel part of another era? Put on a costume at the dress-up corner and take a funny picture!

Of course, there’s lots more to explore, including temporary exhibits and even modern local art at the Rabbit Hole. If the kids are inspired and want to get hands on, head to the first floor where you’ll find a small arts & crafts area. Guildford Museum isn’t big but it’s well worth a visit!

  • Toys from the past at the Childhood Gallery
  • Period costumes at the dress-up corner
