Welcoming over 400,000 visitors through its doors every year, the V&A Museum of Childhood in London's Bethnal Green houses the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection of childhood-related objects and artefacts, spanning the 1600s to the present day.
The Museum's exhibitions and displays explore a broad range of subjects relating to childhood, from design, photography and fashion, to play and social issues. Major exhibitions, such as Beautiful Games, are large and feature hundreds of objects, interactive interpretation and multimedia. Displays and installations, such as 140th Anniversary of the Museum, are smaller-scale and can range in size from a single case to a room in the galleries.
KNIT AND KNATTER
During Term Time on Tuesdays you can join the Knit and Knatter knitting circle. The group is led by friendly volunteers from CSV, for beginner and expert knitters. It is a free drop-in session, where participants can bring along their own knitting, or help us make teddies, toys and clothing for underprivileged children in the UK, Eastern Europe, India and Africa.
