THE V & A MUSEUM of Childhood has been awarded a prize for the quality of education it offers its young visitors.
The museum in Bethnal Green is one of the museums and castles which have won the Sandford Prize which celebrates the quality of education at historic sites.
Judges visited the museum in Cambridge Heath Road in June and followed a school visit from the moment the children arrived to see how warmly they were welcomed and attended classes with them in the education centre.
Lead judge Adam Clarke said: "The museum is a credit to the schools and communities it serves. Through its learning opportunities, the museum provides children with a historical understanding of childhood and family life in East London and beyond.
