V&A Museum of Childhood - Bethnal Green

Yesterday my friend Debbie and I went to the Museum of Childhood at Bethnal Green.   I have been to the museum before but it is a very very long time ago and I don't remember much about it.   
The museum is housed in what appears to be one large room although there are a couple of levels on each side of the main room.   The artefacts are housed in glass cabinets but there are also quite a few items for children to play with and try out.  

There were quite a few dolls houses and some of them were quite amazing 

It was quite noisy as there were a couple of school groups and the noise echoes around the hall.

  1. I visited there a couple of times when I was in Primary school and can remember really enjoying myself. Another place to go back to some day.

  2. I love all your detail photos of the dolls houses - how did you get them so clear behind the glass? Looks like another interesting museum...
