The Story Museum , Oxford - a cottage of lost play?

Just heard about this through the BBC Open Book programme today, which is well worth a listen if you can access iplayer. http://www.storymuseum.org.uk/about-us/vision/ . I shall take a look next time I am in Oxford through curiousity but parents and teachers of young children may be particularly interested.

I think many of the activities for Alice's Day were hosted at The Story Museum. (Alice's Day, July 4, commemorates the first publication of Alice in Wonderland). It was quite a 'do' this year as it was the 150th anniversary.

And of course Tolkien knew Carroll's work, so there is a tangential reason for posting this.
