The Royal Ontario Museum is closed through April 5, and possibly later.
Oh, bother. Visit the Royal Ontario Museum and explore the rich history of one of Canada’s best-known icons: Winnie the Pooh. Featuring original sketches, photos, manuscripts and even letters – but sadly, no honey – this exhibit aims to introduce and re-introduce kids and adults to Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and the other residents of the Hundred Acre Wood, and to the storied work of A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard.
Special events include a members-only preview on March 6, a look at the building of the exhibit on March 8, a trio March Break exhibitions focusing on Pooh and Piglet, and, on May 7, a conversation between ROM curator Justin Jennings and author Lindsay Mattick, great granddaughter to Captain Harry Colebourn, the real-life Winnie’s real-life companion.
