Canterbury Museum

This is undoubtedly one of the most diverse museums I've ever been to, with a wide variety of interesting and engaging exhibitions, stories, and displays.

The Toy Collector

It's a small museum (with more galleries opening soon) containing a huge collection of toys, both modern and from past generations.
