Coming to the V&A Museum of Childhood at the end of November is Space Age: Exploration, Design And Popular Culture – a celebration of the space age to coincide with Sputnik’s 50th birthday.

The exhibition explores the influence that the space race had on pop culture, encompassing music, design, fashion, literature, toys and childhood fantasy. There will be over 300 objects on display including a real Martian meteorite, an original Cosmonaut Suit, a symbolic 1960s mini dress by Leonard Joseph, the 1967 Pastilli Chair and many iconic toys including the 1960s Marx’s clockwork Moon Creatures.

The exhibition will run at the V&A Museum of Childhood from 24th November 2007 – 6th April 2008 before touring museums and galleries around the UK.
