  • We took a class of Year Ones yesterday. They had such a brilliant time looking around the museum and especially loved the pirate display up at the moment. Our Spotlight session was absolutely brilliant and the 2 members of staff doing it went above and beyond to make the children’s experience amazing. The cafe here is also really good! Really close to transport links. A great trip for sure!!
  • Great museum for little kids (and big kids to remember your childhood) lots of historic toys and games from 19c through to present. Including a great collection of 70s/80s/90s stuff like early consoles. Good holiday events for kids (check website) we went to Pirate storytelling in conjunction with a great pirate exhibition. There is a cafe and also picnic area in basement. Local park also available if you need fresh air during the visit. Easy to reach from Cambridge Heath on overground or Bethnal Green Underground.
