Step into the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends with special exhibition Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Original drawings by illustrator E.H. Shepard go on display for the first time in 40 years, as A.A. Milne’s stories are brought to life in the largest ever exhibition dedicated to the loveable character and his creators.

Consider the working relationship between Milne and Shepard, examine the unique language used by the author, and find out more about the influences that helped to forge the popular stories and characters, based on real-life toys owned by Milne’s son, Christopher Robin. Other highlights include original manuscripts and a 1928 Christopher Robin nursery tea set owned by the Queen.

Children can see the stories in a new light, through art and word play, and take part in a range of family-friendly events and activities related to the exhibition.
