Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic

One of the cuddliest holidays around has to be Winnie the Pooh Day, coming up on 18th January 2018. This is celebrated on the birthday of author A A Milne. It’s one special anniversary fans just can’t bear to miss! Every year, the occasion is marked with events such as teddy bears’ picnics, featuring plenty of honey on the menu. We share with you a review of Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

This multi-sensory and playful exhibition is open until 8th of April and explores the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh – one of the most adored fictional characters of all time

The new exhibition about Winnie the Pooh in the Victoria & Albert Museum is like getting into one of the most famous stories of the children literature.

Throughout the tender journey and thanks to the explanation boards, pictures, sketches, letters and photographies you will learn more about the story, the author A.A. Milne, the illustrator E. H. Shepard, and the characters: Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Christopher Robin… It is a sweet and interactive exhibition as you will take part of it because of the sounds, the decoration, the games, the tree story tellers… even a river and a slide!

Through illustrations, decoration and games one believes to be participating in one of the books and is able to better understand everything that both the author and the illustrator wanted to tell. The key themes that you can find if you go deeply into the stories are among others values, ingenuity, adventure and solidarity.

We really loved this one, the kids were playing all the time, explored the area, the illustration and were amazed with all the fun the exhibition offers. Allowing one hour is more than enough to enjoy the beautiful display either for kids and grown ups.

Admission is £8 for adults (if you are not a member) and children go free.  Check their website for more information.
