About

I Grew Up 80s

Take a trip back in time with this nostalgic exhibition.

This summer, visitors to Leicester Museum & Art Gallery are invited to take a trip back in time with the nostalgia-filled exhibition, 'I Grew Up 80s'.

This national touring exhibition explores the cultural landscape of 1980s Britain through the eyes of a child, discovering the vibrancy, quirkiness and innovation that defined the decade.

From Betamax to BMX, Dirty Dancing to Donkey Kong, the Thompson Twins to Transformers, there is something for everyone. 

'I Grew Up 80s' is a lovingly created time capsule of over two hundred treasures that showcase the youthful exuberance of the much-loved decade.

Pull up your leg warmers and unscramble your Rubik's cubes, because like Bill and Ted in their phone booth, or Marty McFly in his DeLorean, it's time for a most excellent adventure.

Revisit the greatest decade in the history of history – the Eighties!
