The Museum of Childhood
When travelling in Edinburgh with children, a trip to the Museum of Childhood is an absolute must and a favourite with adults and children alike. It contains wonderful displays, featuring toys from the past and present and from all parts of the world, as well as displays about other aspects of childhood, including school and sports, health and holidays. While children enjoy playing with the toys, adults will enjoy the feelings of nostalgia at seeing their favourite playthings of yesteryear.
