There are mainly exhibits of the brands Early Lesney, Regular Wheels, Models of Yesteryear, Major Packs, King-Size, Accessory Packs etc. Ancient packaging art and much more is also displayed.

Jean's wife Meg is also a collector. She has a collection of almost 2.000 pretty tin boxes mainly from  the years 1880 to 1950.
