Family & Days Out

Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood

We took off on another National Trust adventure recently, this time to Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood.

It was a lovely, sunny day, and so we packed our first picnic of the year, and set off for a day of sunshine, history, toys, and as is inevitable with my children, lots of running about!

On arrival, the kids wanted their picnic – well, they’d seen me pack food so knew it was available! There’s a lovely open field right by the tea rooms and museum with plenty of picnic benches to use, so this part was easy. After eating, they were itching to run about, pick dandelion clocks and explore..

We then went into the Museum of Childhood. It was a fabulous place, with exhibits from years ago, right through to present time. The Husband and I enjoyed an 80’s themed area, and I liked the many dolls houses on display throughout the ages, too. In every room, there were toys for the children to play with, which they of course loved, as well as a big toy room at the end – we were in there for a while!

Back outside, and it was only a matter of moments before Boo found the woodland play area!

And then from there, we found the gardens and lake, and the children ran around, a lot!!

It was a great day out, as the children loved the freedom to run and play, along with the added fun of the toys in the museum. Oh, and they had plant sales and cakes 😉
