Game Plan: Board Games RediscoveredA display of some of the most competitively fought and visually striking games from the V&A's collection of board games, Game Plan: Board Games Rediscovered is a celebration of the joy, excitement and occasional frustration of playing board games. As well as current family favourites - you can't beat Cluedo and Trivial Pursuit for some screen-free family fun - the exhibition looks at historical board games such as The Game of the Goose and beautifully-designed games from the 18th and 19th centuries. Not just for the kids, the museum stays open late on the opening night for an evening of good old fashioned gaming for adults.

 

About V & A Museum of Childhood

Collections showcase all aspects of childhood, from games throughout the ages to a historical look at cots, prams and feeding bottles (including a 19th century ceramic bottle).
