Description:
At Dewsbury Museum you can experience things that have changed in the lives of children over the last century. In the 'Growing Up in Dewsbury' exhibition, you can gaze through the windows of a 1940s classroom taking a trip back to school and war-torn Britain.

There's a 'Toys will be Toys' gallery to discover the role of toys and play, where you'll also discover why certain toys are collector's items. There's also a busy programme of temporary exhibitions and events. Dewsbury Museum is a must for anyone who's ever been a child.
