In 2010 the iconic manufacturers of train sets and Scalextric decided to open up its archives and small museum to the general public. The museum is housed within the company’s main production facility at Westwood near Ramsgate in Kent. Inside visitors can discover how Hornby designs and manufacturers scale model railways, cars and Airfix plastic model kits. The museum will, initially, be opened on special open days but future plans exist to open it on a more regular basis.

As you enter the Hornby Museum you might at first worry that you've taken a wrong turn into an industrial estate, I know that I did on my first visit, but don't worry all quickly becomes clear. The museum is located on the same site as their production facility and is a fascinating glimpse into the past of model railways, Airfix and dinky car toys. Children of all ages will have a whale of a time reliving old and maybe even suppressed memories from their own childhoods and I just loved walking around this particular museum. - Patrick Boniface
