Museum of Childhood

The Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood collection is located in London's Bethnal Green. With toys, games, dolls, childcare items, art, and photography, the Museum of Childhood provides activities, workshops, and exhibits for adults and families to enjoy. Come to see the toys of your childhood and reminisce, showing the kids what it was like "back in the day," or take part in an active story-telling session. See the oldest surviving English rocking horse (dated circa 1605) and well-loved toys from the 20th century. Whatever you do, you'll gain insights about how children have lived through the years.

  • Go with the kids and take a themed and guided tour of the collections, including Toys from around the World and Childhood Past and Present.
  • Sign up for a family tour geared toward kids 3-12 with activities for children as well as adults, bringing the collection of the Museum of Childhood in London to life.
  • Recharge at the bénugo café in the Museum’s Central Hall, offering fresh foods and a place to rest whilst enjoying the Museum of Childhood atmosphere in London.

With free admission, the Museum of Childhood is an attractive way to spend an afternoon. Although driving isn't recommended in London, and parking can be expensive, there are paid parking bays on Cambridge Heath Road. If you have specific access needs, book free on-site parking with the museum. Down the road from the Bethnal Green Underground station, the museum is a short walk from the Cambridge Heath and Bethnal Green railway stations, and buses D6, 106, 254, 309, and 388 stop directly in front of the Museum. Bike stands are available on the grounds or for hire across the street.
