Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

The name of the museum has obviously been changed because it is no longer a museum ABOUT childhood, it is a museum FOR children, with an emphasis on design and manufacturing (as with the main V&A). This is an interesting idea, but with a supposed age range of 0-14, it is difficult to create somewhere which suits everyone. The museum is divided into areas aimed at different age groups but inevitably the toddlers and small children dominate, especially in terms of volume.

The way the displays are organised results in the feeling that you are looking at a cabinet of curiosities – or, if you are feeling less generous, a mish-mash. For example, a pair of children’s wellingtons is next to a Victorian shell mosaic because both use glue in their manufacture. Another cabinet contains a pair of clown’s shoes, a Trunki child’s suitcase, and a vase which looks like a paper bag but is actually made of silver. It is a strange experience and probably you should just give up trying to look for connections and wander around until something interesting catches your eye. To be fair, I acknowledge that I am not the target audience so perhaps this juxtaposition of items works for children.

Although I found a lot of the exhibits interesting, the visit was also quite a frustrating experience because of the confusing labelling system. Some items are numbered and you have to find the relevant number on the key to find out what they are, whilst other exhibits are not numbered but have their own display label – in both cases the label or the key was often nowhere near the item and several times I gave up trying to work out what something was. The walls of pictures were particularly difficult to negotiate in this respect. A couple of the items in the upstairs cabinet about coding / computers didn’t seem to have a label or a number at all.

Another criticism of the labels is that although they were written for children they were often so simplified that I couldn’t actually follow what was being described – they raised more questions than they answered (and I am 48, not 8, so I’m not sure how children will get on with them). I would have loved more information about some of the items – for example in the display dealing with architecture and built environment, I wanted to know what some of the things were made of and why they were made in the first place, such as the beautiful carved model of a Victorian railway platform, and a pyramid of miniature high street shops. No explanation was given. Also in this case the grouping of certain items seemed particularly far-fetched – a tiny model of a kitchen in a matchbox is linked with an 18th century print of a Roman ruin, apparently telling us something about homes being different sizes, although the ruin didn’t look like it had anyone living in it for quite some time.

The upper floor is the most design-focused and is apparently aimed at 11-14 year olds, although most of the displays on this floor would not be out of place in the main V&A or in any other design-related museum. They are therefore interesting for adults but I wonder how engaging they really are for children, or at least the children would benefit from adults engaging them in discussions about the exhibits, which makes me wonder why you wouldn’t just take older children to a general museum anyway. Sustainability inevitably features prominently in these displays so we have furniture made from recycled plastic and also from mycelium fungus, which I found fascinating, although again, I couldn’t follow the simplified “explanation” of the manufacturing process. Some examples of items invented by children were interesting and fulfilled the criteria of being relevant to children and also connected with design and technology.

I have read a few criticisms from people lamenting the fact that there aren’t as many old toys on display any more. There are still some cabinets of toys, although it seems a very odd decision to have put many of these in the toddlers’ soft play area. The young children have no interest in them, the parents are too busy supervising the children, and any adult without children will not want (or not be allowed?) to go into that area to look at those displays. It feels like a way of the museum being able to silence some criticisms by saying “We DO still have old toys on display” – but hardly anyone will really be able to look at them. In another section, the display of old board games was interesting but again I found the labelling frustratingly uninformative – without dates on anything, you can’t put them in any sort of context. For example, I would have been interested to know whether a board game about black identity and another one called Pandemic were produced in the last couple of years or were older, reflecting ongoing concerns with these issues. A collection of doll’s houses is nicely presented along a sort of street with the floor marked like a road, but the interiors of the houses are very dark. Although a torch is provided next to one of them, wouldn’t it be possible to have put small LED lights actually inside the houses to illuminate them better?

It is a shame that nowhere is the history of the building itself outlined or referred to – seems like a missed opportunity to engage children in an awareness of the design of the historic building by getting them to look around and showing them a picture of how it looked in the 19th century, either by the entrance or in the section referring to architecture and built environment.

So, a mixed experience. Some interesting items but not a pleasant atmosphere for adults so it will be a while before I return!

I used to visit the Bethnal Green Museum of childhood when I was younger and loved all the exhibits. Visited today with my husband and how it has changed.
It no longer feels like a museum but a glorified play area for the local under 5s.
Gone are all the wonderful displays that used to fill the atrium, instead this is a large empty area. Where are all the toys that used to be on display?
The only saving grace was the Chinese garden model that I loved as a young girl was still on display.

It's great for families with young children, really young children. Otherwise the temporary worker was very friendly.

I've visited many times before but this was the first since the reopening last summer.
I used to spend a couple of hours looking at the items but this time I was done in 40 mins.
There seems to be far less on view, where has everything gone? I visited on a Wednesday morning and apart from myself there were only 4 other adults. The rest were parents with toddlers, the museum has become a nursery. The upper gallery is dedicated to design and was deserted, also I couldn't work out the connection of this display to the rest of the museum. It left me puzzled as to what the museum is trying to achieve.
Very disappointed and saddened that a once fascinating museum is now so humdrum.
No reason for me ever to go back.

I was fairly disappointed in the museum. After a really lengthy and spendy refurbishment, I was expecting more. It promised to be for children, but my 8yo was underwhelmed. It lacked interactivity, and the sound points were almost all broken (“sorry, I’ve lost my voice” taped over). The stage area had 1 outfit hanging on a hook, I’ve no idea if there used to be more but that was disappointing. Considering it was redesigned with children in mind, the littlest visitors were overlooked, and queues for the too-few baby change tables. The space for under 3s looked great - not much for anyone older though. I felt this particular interactive area had more than enough space for more, and that the designers could perhaps have done more research into what engages children. We left after an hour, I’m glad it was free tbh. On the plus side, the staff there were all friendly.

Honestly a real disappointment to visit. The facilities were not available to you (private baby changing) unless you asked a female attendant. The male attendant wanted me to change my daughter in full view of the busy toilet coridoor & refused us entry to a private baby changing area as it was “disabled adults only.” Not much for my energetic 2 and 4 year old friends kids to do.

I looked online before we visited to try and find information about the layout of the museum and what there is to see. I couldn't find much information online so hope this review helps others in a similar situation. The museum is aimed at children and split into 3 zones - Imagine, Play and Design. Imagine and Play are on the first level with Design on the top floor. Imagine - we started here and walked through an area with some lovely dolls houses. Various toys from different eras were displayed but grouped as children may see them e.g. things that move was one display. That included the Nimbus 2000 from Harry Potter and a Star Wars space ship, along with other toys. Other displays included Christopher Reeves costume, War Horse model and various toys from all eras. My daughter was thrilled to see the original Barbie as depicted in the new movie. There were lots of hands on and interactive features. We visited with three generations and everyone enjoyed this area. Play - the two play areas were really aimed at pre-schoolers so we didn't stay long here.

What set young v/A apart was the personalized touch they brought to every aspect of the journey. It wasn't just about visiting popular landmarks; it was about discovering hidden gems and immersing ourselves in the authentic culture of each location. Our guide's insights and recommendations unveiled a side of the destinations that most tourists never get to experience.
