The Museum of Childhood branch of the V&A is specially designed for children to learn about objects made for and by children. There is a range of exhibitions exploring subjects such as photography, fashion, play and social issues.
Check out the museum’s doll collection, the largest in all of the UK, even featuring a paddle-doll from 1300BC!
Get mechanical with the museum’s Moving Toys Gallery, or be inspired in the Creativity Gallery which explains the processes of imagination, inspiration, exploration and making things happen with interactive opportunities along the way.
Parents will also love the museum for its collections of toys from the past. Look out for the Star Wars figurines or the Sindy dolls – nostalgia is guaranteed!
