Montacute TV Radio Toy Museum, Somerset is believed to be the only one of its kind in the country, is like a Tardis, opening up inside to reveal an unexpectedly immense number of displays, probably the largest collection of toys, books, annuals, jigsaws and games related to TV and radio programmes.
Recognise original props such as Hank the cowboy puppet and Pete the Mexican used in the original 1950s TV series Hank Rides Again. Annie Sugdens AGA from Emmerdale, when it was known as Emmerdale Farm and the original jousting poles from the 90s series of Gladiators.
Programmes are brought to life through scenes and displays including: Mr Beans second hand TV and radio shop; a life size performing Homer Simpson; Step into the Tardis - see all the doctors from past to present around the console, life size cybermen, daleks, clockwork men, the giant robot plus lots more.
Take a nostalgic trip through the world of radio and television programmes, a real time capsule of all your favourite memories from your best loved programmes leaving you reminiscing and smiling for hours after.
