Oh, bother!

You’ll have the chance to relive your childhood at the Royal Ontario Museum this year at the museum’s new Winnie-the-Pooh exhibit, which opens on March 7.

This immersive and playful exhibit is ideal for both adults and children alike, as they’ll have the opportunity to discover and rediscover the magical world of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Woods.

The exhibit will feature interactive activities and larger-than-life environments that will invite visitors to fall in love with author A.A. Milne and illustrator E.H. Shepard’s iconic characters.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view original sketches, manuscripts, letters, photographs, and memorabilia.

And while Winnie-the-Pooh actually has ties to the city of Winnipeg, Toronto’s ROM is the only Canadian stop on the exhibition’s tour.

“Finally, have your own Heritage Minute and find out how a black bear from Winnipeg inspired the honey-loving, yellow-furred bear of very little brain,” reads the ROM’s website.
