Childhood Collection

The Childhood Collection contains objects made by children, reflecting their world views, and collections about children and childhood. It also encompasses photographs, documents and audiovisual material, and records material culture and intangibles such as play lore, experiences and ideas.

The collection commenced in the 1980s, and now comprises around 2200 objects, including games, dolls, toys, school material, clothing and costume, domestic items, and child-related organisations and issues.
