More information from organisers:

Co-designed with children and young people, Young V&A is a free, national museum. The space is designed to showcase the power of creativity in children’s lives as they build new skills and develop the creative confidence needed to thrive in our fast-changing world.

Young V&A will be a ‘doing’ museum – a joyful, buzzing, and optimistic place underpinned by the power of design and creativity. There will be sensory playscapes, a finger skateboard park, an ‘Imagination Playground’ construction zone, a performance and story-telling stage as well as an open design studio for children and young people.

The museum’s three permanent galleries will be Imagine, Play and Design. They will showcase around 2,000 objects from the V&A’s collection of art, design and performance. Highlights include a sensory environment for pre-walkers in the Play Gallery. There will also be a range of new commissions, co-designed and co-curated projects and live programming.
