Dewsbury Museum

Dewsbury Museum


See and hear what's changed in the lives of children over the last century in the 'Growing up in Dewsbury' exhibition. Take a trip back to school and to war-torn Britain as you gaze through the windows of the 1940's classroom. Visit the new 'Toys will be Toys' gallery to discover the role of toys and play, and find out why certain toys are collectors items. With a busy programme of temporary exhibitions and events, Dewsbury Museum is for anyone who's ever been a child.
