Childhood

April 8, 2015

Many of the items we have at Market Lavington Museum are connected with childhood so this year we have organised a child level shelf in the entrance room to portray artefacts connected with childhood in times past.

It is behind glass and hard to photograph!

This display has a mix of toys and games which may have been used in homes along with school based items.

Children and adults alike will enjoy seeing reminders of things they once knew or that parents and grandparents once used. All items have simple labels to explain them and if you want to know more then ask the museum steward who is on duty to help you.

Other childhood items, from a doll’s house to christening robes, will be found elsewhere in the museum.

Even if you are a regular visitor to the museum there are plenty of new items and displays this year so do visit soon.
