Museum Of Childhood EdinburghFree: All time

At the Museum of Childhood, adults can indulge in a trip down memory lane while children will learn what “fun” is in a world before video games. It is a treasure house, crammed full of playthings. The Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh was the first museum of its kind to specialize in the history of childhood. The collection, which ranges from the 18th to the 21st century, was originally the work of Patrick Murray, a city Councillor who was also a toy collector.
