My name is Alice Sage and I’m Curator at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.
As well as curating exhibitions and looking after the thousands of objects in our care, the Collections team at the Museum deal with hundreds of enquiries every year from researchers, collectors, and interested visitors. In the course of researching our displays and answering these questions, we learn more about our collection, and even unearth stories from the Museum’s past.
In this blog, I explore the stories of objects and people in our collection of childhood.
