The Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh would be a good choice for Anybody travelling with kids. The first museum in the world dedicated to the history of childhood, it displays toys and games from across the generations. The Museum also explores other aspects of growing up, from schooldays and clubs to clothing, health and holidays.
Children will love seeing teddies, dolls, trains and pedal cars up-close. They can listen to the sounds of a 1930s schoolroom and see a recreated Victorian street complete with outdoor toys. They can even get hands-on with our dressing up costumes and games.
The Museum of Childhood is set in two historic buildings straddling South Gray’s Close on the Royal Mile. Both buildings were constructed in the 18th century. The eastern building was home to some well-known figures of Edinburgh society, while the western building housed a theatre, and later an ironmongers.
