I was lucky enjoy to be invited to Disney’s preview of the Winnie the Pooh exhibition in London’s Victoria & Albert museum (V&A) on Wednesday, ahead of its official opening on Saturday.
This exhibition was an absolute treat, especially for a life-long Winnie the Pooh fan like me. They had everything from movie props to merchandise, though the clear highlight was the number of original pencil drawings that made it into the books themselves. I loved being able to see these early sketches that I remember so well from my childhood.
The V&A have said they want this to be their most immersive exhibition yet, and I can definitely see why. There are letters falling from the ceiling, huge balloons at the entrance, little holes and slides for children to play, and even a little cinema room where people can lie on the floor to watch the stories unfold on the ceiling.
Watch my video of the experience at the Winnie the Pooh exhibition to find out more:
I thoroughly enjoyed my day, and definitely could have spent more in the gift shop! They had a lot of lovely prints and cute merchandise that would tempt almost any Winnie the Pooh fan.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 9th December into the new year, so there is a lot of time to go and see it at the V&A museum in London. I think that it’s something that adults will enjoy as much as children. There’s nothing as good as a bit of nostalgia every once in a while!
I hope you enjoyed my preview of the exhibition, and I want to say thank you to Disney for inviting me along and for the lovely gift bag of goodies that I received.
