The World’s Largest Collection Of Toy Soldiers

There are thousands of tiny soldiers locked in eternal combat in Valencia, Spain, housed in the Museo de los Soldaditos de Plomo (museum of the little lead soldiers).

What started as a small collection belonging to Museum Director Alejandro Noguera’s father has become a collection of over one million, with 85,000 on display in diorama scenes straight out of history. You can see more of Derek Workman’s beautiful photos of the historical tableaus at the link below.
