Britain is uniquely rich in the quality and variety of its small museums: remarkable collections built up by enthusiasts and based in small buildings scattered throughout town and country. These museums contain riches to offer everyone, ranging from cards to chocolate, steam trains to snuff boxes, teddy bears to typewriters. This comprehensive companion to Britain's small museums is designed to accompany travellers and tourists on their journeys around Britain and to satisfy the armchair traveller. The guide has many maps and illustrations, a clear description of each collection, opening times and facilities, and directions on how to find it. It also provides background stories about the collector and the collection.
