Get ready to pull up your leg warmers and scramble your Rubik’s Cubes, as the exciting new exhibition, I Grew Up 80s is coming to the Museum!

You’ll travel through the cultural landscape of 1980s Britain through the eyes of a child – revisiting the vibrancy, quirkiness and innovation that defined the decade.

Discover over 200 iconic treasures – from BMX to Betamax, Dirty Dancing to Donkey Kong, Thompson Twins to Transformers.

If you were a child, teenager or adult and experienced the 80s get ready to exclaim “I remember that!”


(And if you didn’t grow up in the 80s you’ll still be familiar with the much-loved music and films from this decade and from TV and films set in the 80s today)


The exhibition is curated by Matt Fox and is drawn from his personal collection of 80s memorabilia.
