The Childhood Galleries house the V&A Museum of Childhood's permanent displays relating to the social history of childhood. The displays have been designed to enable visitors, especially children, to compare their own experiences of life with those experienced in the past and in different cultures. Throughout the galleries visitors will find representations of childhood from the Museum's collection of art works which complement the objects. The display includes toys used by children in role play, such as toy prams, as well as real life nursery objects dating back to the 1600s, including a baby walker and 'pudding' safety hat from the 19th century.
