Special Exhibitions Gallery
On now until Sunday 28 April 2019 – Normal opening hours
Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, has brought the Bears special exhibition to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery.
Cuddly, friendly bears have featured in numerous books for children since the ‘invention’ of the Teddy Bear in the early 1900s. Many stories feature anthropomorphic bear characters with names and personalities.
Discover the scary bear under the stairs, hunt for bears in the bear forest and enjoy original manuscripts and illustrations from Phillip Pullman, Michael Rosen, Martin Waddell, Julia Donaldson and many more.
The Curators at Seven Stories approached all of the artists and authors who contributed to the exhibition with questions about their processes and inspiration for the story or characters.
You can bring your own special bear to the museum and read a bedtime story in their cosy bear cave.
Suitable for bear fanatics of all ages.
Visit the Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery website for opening times and admission prices.
