V&A Museum of Childhood
A few weeks ago my son and I visited the Victoria & Albert Museum of Childhood. What a brilliant museum! It was our first visit and aside from losing my son for about five minutes (thank goodness I had a friend there to help find him!), we thought it was so fun - lots of treasured toys from the past (many behind glass cases!), as well as plenty of interactive, hands-on toys and activities to keep the kids entertained.
Our little ones loved playing with sandbox, the puppet theatre and the rocking horse! The museum is short walk from the Bethnal Green tube station, and they host several activities for kids through the week (including half-term). We arrived right as the museum opened (10am) and it was very quiet for the first hour, then quickly filled up with lots of school children!
Also, the museum shop at the V&A Museum of Childhood now ranks among my favourites.
