The Classic Winnie-the-Pooh

September 20, 2018

What a great belated-birthday surprise I had this past weekend from my daughter and son-in-law.  They surprised me with a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston!

One of my favorite characters was there to greet me!

“A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” ~Eeyore

I have to say I was probably more excited to see this exhibit than all of the youngsters that were there!

Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh, and their friends are beloved characters in our family. If you get a chance, you have to see this exhibit. Kids will love the little bed, the steps on the halfway down stairs, Eeyore’s house, the bridge, and all of the interactive activities included in the Hundred Acre Wood exhibit. Adults will enjoy the artifacts, letters, photographs, drawings, and history that go along with the Pooh stories written by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard. There’s so much to see and do that everyone will be entertained.

These pictures I’m including are just a few of the many things to see.
