About

Why do we play? How important is it for all of us, young or old? What does it mean to play well? We invite you to consider the impact of play in our lives.

‘Play Well’ explores how play transforms both childhood and society. Using displays of historic toys and games, artworks and design, this exhibition investigates how play develops social bonds, emotional resilience and physical wellbeing. The exhibition includes: images of children at play in the street, in playgrounds and beyond; makeshift and commercially produced toys; digital games and a LARP (live action role-play) space by artist Adam James. 

The exhibition is open to people of all ages, but there are limited opportunities for interaction and handling objects.
