Royal Pavilion

Corporation, the museum is located in a late 19th-century villa originally known as Brooker Hall.[1] The museum features a toy gallery that includes a significant collection of dolls, teddy bears, mechanical toys, toy trains, dollhouses, rocking horses and tricycles. Another focus is contemporary crafts and fine art. The museum also includes local history displays, and a collection of early cinema artifacts from the 1890s and 1900s. Brooker Hall was constructed in 1877 by the architect Thomas Lainson for Major John Vallance. The building is in the Italianate style made popular by Osborne House, Queen Victoria's residence on the Isle of Wight. It stands in grounds now laid out as a public park.[2] References[edit]
