The Museum of Childhood is a delight for all ages with something for everyone. Explore the childhoods of times gone by, make stories, play with toys and share your childhood with others. You can be a chimney sweep, a scullion or a Victorian pupil, and be captivated by our archive film, interactives and displays. You'll find something for everyone in the eight new themed galleries. Exciting activities, interactive displays and a multitude of toys will bring out your inner child and keep the little ones enthralled for hours.
