The V &A Museum of Childhood is one of the world’s finest collections of children’s toys, doll’s houses, games and costumes. It shines brighter than ever after extensive refurbishment. Part of the Victoria & Albert Museum, the museum has been amassing childhood-related objects since 1872 and continues to do so with ‘Incredibles’ figures complimenting bonkers 1970s puppets, Barbie Dolls and Victorian praxinoscopes. Regular exhibitions are held upstairs, while the café helps to revive flagging grown-ups.
