Charting 64 tumultuous years in history, Modern British Childhood explores issues surrounding education, health, family, entertainment, fashion and play. From a pair of 1950s children’s NHS prescription glasses to the 2005 Teddyfone (designed for under 5s) the exhibition gathers together objects – exceptional or everyday, public or private – that dramatise the huge changes that have occurred in children’s lives. Clothing, toys, books and childcare items will be shown alongside TV and film footage and photography.
