Elmer the Elephant

Elmer & Friends: The Colourful World of David McKee

Exhibition Coming Soon – Opening Autumn 2020

Join us to celebrate the Museum’s reopening with the colourful and feel-good story of Elmer the Elephant. This exciting new exhibition invites you to journey into the world of  author and illustrator David McKee.

Elmer is one of the most widely-read books of all time – loved by big and small people. As if by magic, you can explore Elmer’s jungle and enter Mr Benn’s costume shop. Or simply immerse yourself in the visual feast of original illustrations (along with artwork from other books by David McKee including Not Now Bernard, Mr Benn and King Rollo).
