The Museum of Childhood

The Museum of Childhood will be open this Easter Sunday (27 March) to help keep everyone in the family entertained.

The Museum which is usually closed on a Sunday during off-peak months will open between 12 noon and 5.00pm to let families explore the fascinating history of childrens toys and look at the lives of children throughout the ages.

Described as the noisiest museum in the world, the Museum of Childhood is a favourite with adults and children alike. Its a treasure house, crammed full of objects telling of childhood, past and present.

The Museum of Childhood – which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year was the first museum in the world to specialise in the history of childhood. In its five galleries, visitors can learn about the lives of children in decades gone by. There is a great selection of toys and games so parents and grandparents can reminisce while the children enjoy the interactive elements of the exhibition.

Admission is free.
