What’s on at the Museum of Childhood


Portraits of children on the cusp of transition from primary to secondary education by Rachel Molina go on display from 10 June. Neither sentimental nor judgemental, the photographer gives a voice to children who are often Seen But Not Heard.

From 22 July, visitors can explore the secrets behind Michael Morpurgo’s storytelling through his original drafts, adaptations, scripts and unpublished manuscripts. Michael Morpurgo: A Lifetime in Stories will also feature Joey, the original life-size West End horse puppet from the National Theatre’s adaptation of War Horse.

Throughout the summer holidays there will be free drop-in family Fridays themed around storytelling. Also, if you’re looking for inspiring childcare don’t miss out on the Summer Art Camps. Be quick, places are limited.
And don’t forget the annual Summer Festival on 23 July.
