Play: An Exploration of Toys, Games & Fun

Delve into the world of play in this interactive exhibition for all the family.

Discover how we have played for the last 2000 years. From marbles to Meccano and dolls to dressing up, this exhibition is packed with objects and interactives to delight and entertain all ages.

Come and join in the fun and find some treasured memories from your childhood and beyond. 

To potentially feature in the exhibition, you can donate photos of your own toys to the Virtual Museum by using #playattheherbert on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.


Join us for a celebration of Rare, the award-winning and internationally renowned video games company based in Warwickshire, in our exhibition, Rare: From 8-bit to Xbox One.

Play is kindly supported by Rare
