Experience the timeless and universal appeal of one of the most adored fictional characters of all time – Winnie-the-Pooh –– in this immersive and playful exhibition. Kids and grown ups of all ages are invited to discover and rediscover the magical world of this much-loved bear and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.
Featuring interactive activities and larger-than-life environments, this exhibition will make you fall in love again with these thoughtful characters and delight in their resourcefulness while appreciating the universal themes of cooperation, friendship and tolerance that they embody. Showcasing original sketches, manuscripts, letters, photographs and memorabilia, Winnie-the Pooh brings to life the story behind the creative partnership of author A.A. Milne and illustrator E.H. Shepard. Finally, have your own Heritage Minute and find out how a black bear from Winnipeg inspired the honey-loving, yellow-furred bear of very little brain, exclusively at the ROM, the only Canadian stop on the tour.
Oh, bother! This exhibition doesn’t open until March 7, 2020.
