If you’re going down to the woods today…this summer the Museum will be bursting with Bears!

Revisit your favourite stories and meet some of literature’s most famous bears, including Rupert and Winnie-the-Pooh, before discovering new stories filled with polar bears, panda bears and toy bears. 

Original artwork and manuscripts featured in the exhibition include Hugless Douglas, Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, The Bear and The Piano and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

The exhibition comes to us from Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books.

Don’t miss: Bears’ Glade

Discover a world of Bears! Go on your own bear hunt through the bears’ glade, curl up with your favourite story in the bear cave and enjoy dressing up as your favourite characters.
