V&A Museum of Childhood

The V&A Museum of Childhood is located in London's Bethnal Green and has a great collection of childhood related objects and artefacts, spanning the 1600s to the present day.

The collection includes toys - including dolls, dolls' houses, puppets and teddy bears - games, childcare, clothing, furniture and art and photography, and displays, a wide variety of activities. Great fun for all the family. They also run temporary exhibitions and we was lucky enough to see called Beautiful Games which is on until the 9th September the exhibition looking at the sport behind science, featuring over 70 examples of cutting edge sports equipment and historic memorabilia.

It was a fun day out - although I had taken the boys there a couple of years ago they really enjoyed looking at the toys and interacting with the activities and exhibitions on offer.
A great day out and it was free to get in. I had a nice time reminiscing at the toys I once had owned.
We will defiantly visit again in the near future.
