This lively and comprehensive guide to Britain’s small and lesser-known museums highlights many unique collections gathered together by one or more enthusiasts. Ranging from cars to chocolate, shoes to snuff boxes, and teddy bears to typewriters, the guide reveals the wealth of small museums located off the main track which can often be easily-missed. Illustrated with maps and photographs, the book gives a clear description of each collection and directions on how to find it, its opening times, the facilities it offers, and intriguing stories about the collectors and the collections.
