From Robinson Crusoe to Peter Pan, let the Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh take you back to days gone by at your mother’s knee hearing your favourite childhood story for a new free exhibition, Growing Up with Books. From the 18th Century to today, they’ll whisk you on an enchanting journey through the well-loved characters and stories that have fuelled little imaginations, as well as showcasing some of the most touching souvenirs and messages left scribbled in the pages of books that have changed lives and moved their readers. There’s also regular adult creative workshops and fun activities for the grandchildren running alongside the exhibition.
Runs until December 2018. For more info call 0131 529 4142 or visit www.edinburghmuseums.org.uk
