Toy Soldiers | Level 1B

Fall 2018

In 1991, during his tenure as Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Honourable Henry N. R. Jackman donated his historic collection of toy soldiers to the Royal Ontario Museum. 

While there are a few of these collectables currently on display in the J.F. Driscoll Family Stair of Wonders, this new installation will showcase almost all of the Hal Jackman Toy Soldier Collection, which traces the historic life span of Britains Ltd., one of the world’s pioneers in the manufacturing of toy soldiers. Visitors are invited to enjoy the artistry and detail of this outstanding collection, and learn about the legacy of Britains Ltd.’s years of lead toy production from 1893-1966.
