An Exhibition of Model Cars and Fire Engines at Tara’s Palace Museum of Childhood

Our very own volunteer Keith Dungan has given, on loan, his prized collection of model Fire Engines and some model cars including a Ferrari Testa Rossa and an E type Jaguar. The models are of European and American emergency vehicles made by Dinky, Corgi and Matchbox. Some are in mint condition, others have served their time in a playroom and show it! Scales vary from 1:72 to 1:43.


All of these models are now on show at the museum located on the first floor of Powerscourt House, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow.

Future exhibitions by Keith will feature:

American cars/gas guzzlers
Public transport (buses & trams)
Cars of the 1950’s/1960’s/’1970’s
Military vehicles
Trade vehicles of the early/mid 20th century
Railway models (incl. the 00 gauge Hornby engines)
Sports cars of the 20th century/Jaguar/Lotus etc.
Minis/Beetles/Triumphs/Fords etc.
Steam vehicles
