The Games We Play
We are delighted to announce that this exhibition is being extended until Sunday 11 January
The Games We Play is a chance to explore games and play from across different cultures and time periods. From the Papua New Guinea story of Pikinini Wantaim Bubu, which shows how children learn to be adults from their grandparents, through strategy games like chess and mahjong to the physical fun of street games such as kite flying and cricket, this exhibition looks at the importance of games in all our lives.
Archaeological evidence shows that games predate the existence of writing, so people right across the world having been playing games for a very long time. More than just pure fun and enjoyment, playing also gives children skills for life, develops their imaginations and pits adult against adult in battles of skill, courage and endurance.
There will be events through the summer as part of this exhibition, so look out for more details.
So join us at Scotland Street, to wander through childhood favourites, discover new games from across the world and much more,with this fantastic new temporary exhibition.
