V&A Museum of Childhood - What's On

V&A Museum of Childhood
Until Spring 2020

Earlier this year we announced our ambitious transformation plans. Now it's time for you to release your inner designer and help us create the world’s most joyful museum!

We have turned our exhibition space into an Open Studio. Pop by to try things out, give feedback, play, design and make.

Happy birthday to us!
Back in 1872 we opened our doors as the Bethnal Green Museum. We exhibited food and animal products, but lots has changed since then...

Take part in hands-on, outdoor and digital games, learn what children used to play 50 years ago and contribute to an ever-growing archive of fun.
