Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood – Vintage toys

Just a little something…

Picture This uk

24 pics. The V & A Toy Museum is in Bethnal Green just a little north of Bethnal Green Underground station on Cambridge Heath Road. There are numerous events and workshops for children including schools groups.  It is worth seeing their website ⇒.

The museum is free to enter and photography is allowed but difficult due the lighting and reflections from the glass cases.  Nevertheless it is worth a visit and there will be second post later. 🙂

The V & A Museum of design in South Kensington is much larger and can be found here ⇐.

Dolls Houses
