The Way We Played: Toy Exhibit at Littleton Museum

The Littleton Museum announces its upcoming exhibition, The Way We Played. Inspired by nostalgia, this is a toy exhibit for all ages, especially adults. Located in the museum’s Changing Exhibit Hall, the exhibition will open Friday, September 13, and close January 3, 2021. By discovering and playing as kids, we grew strong, learned important social and tactile skills, and developed powerful relationships. It is the memory of these experiences, and the connection to favorite toys, that evoke strong feelings of nostalgia. Using interactive stations, photographs of Littleton locals and their favorite toys, and artifacts from the Littleton Museum’s collection, this exhibit invites visitors to experience and recall the ways we all played. To celebrate the exhibit opening, the Littleton Museum will host an open house on Saturday, September 14 from noon to 3 p.m. A family-friendly event, visitors are encouraged to participate in a variety of games and activities, plus partake in play and food trucks. Visitors can also bring their favorite childhood toy and have their picture taken with it for a fun takeaway! For museum hours and information visit littletongov.org.
