Quietly unassuming and tucked away in Eslöv is this quaint little museum that is well worth a day trip. It's a large family run collection of all sorts of bits and pieces, but what sets it apart are the model trains. Amazing for kids both big and little!

Under the unassuming name of "Eslövs Toy Museum" hides a pearl of fun for big and small kids. The private collection is both impressive and entertaining to browse. There are thousands of tin soldiers, 300+ smurfs and hundreds of lego kits. And that's just scratching the surface of the collection. But the crown jewel, and what kept us there for a good two hours, is the running model railways. What must be dozens of meters of it fills the majority of the museum and there are countless little details to look at. Highly recommend a visit to the museum.

Incredible collection of toys from all aspects of the toyiverse. The building the museum is housed in needs some major renovation, but apart from that the whole museum is really impressive and well maintained.

Packed full of amazing trains, Lego kits and toys from the last 50 years or so. The family who own and run the museum are very welcoming - well worth a visit!

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
