Brings back lots of memories,it was nice to see grandparents explaining how they used to play with toys. Lots of hands on exhibits.I managed to get the ball in the cup after 3 attempts.

In the spirit of it being a childhood museum you expect some noise... but that should stop children from being respectful. A pity they could not behave as it really spoiled the visit! Go out of school holidays for a much better experience!

This is a great museum with some fascinating exhibits, but it's not big enough on a hot day for the number of people all trying to visit at the same time. On a quiet day it would be even better,

We felt that there was not a lot from the 40's and 50's on view. Families seemed to like it there, as there are activities for children.

Very extensive museum on 2 floors. Plenty for children to see and interact with the displays. There are also games on the lawn for children to join in.

While visiting Sudbury Hall, went into the Museum of Childhood,heard lots of people say I had one of those, bought back many memories, showed how simply some of the toys were yesteryear.
