Timewarp: The Spirit of Baker's Bazaar

Timewarp 2019: in the spirit of Baker's Bazaar

26 January - 31 December 2019

Step into the Timewarp inspired by Guernsey toy shop Baker's Bazaar.

We decided it's time to step back 40 years to enjoy (or re-enjoy) the games & toys from the 1970s. 

If you haven't been to the Museum before, the Timewarp is a small room located at Guernsey Museum in Candie Gardens.  It is part of the Discovery Room (the hands-on area of the Museum, complete with activities, games and dressing up).  This year the Timewarp is jam-packed with toys.  There is a shop window and cash desk with a working model train and a rocking horse.  For those who remember Baker's Bazaar, you might feel nostalgic about the fishing tackle, French pottery and moving bugs in the window!

Elsewhere in the Discovery Room, there are many toys from the 1970s on display. 

There is no extra charge for visiting the Timewarp: it is part of the Museum and normal admission and opening hours apply. 

Every January the Timewarp changes. Previous Timewarps have been:

The sitting room from Ebenezer Le Page (2011)

A cabin from RMS Titanic (2012)

1960s teenager's bedroom (2013)

The cave from Toilers of the Sea - complete with octopus (2014)

Celtic roundhouse (2015)

Mir Space Station (2016)

We like to tie Timewarps in with special anniversaries and events.  If you have an idea for a future Timewarp, please get in touch via museums@gov.gg.
