The Adventures of the Real Winnie-the-Pooh – New York, NY


Visitors and residents of New York City can visit Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends at Hundred Acre Wood in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. The Adventures of the Real Winnie-the-Pooh is a permanent exhibit at the The New York Public Library.

Since 1987, Pooh and four of his closest friends, Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, and Tigger have resided at the NYPL’s Children’s Center on 42nd Street. They are the original gifts author A.A. Milne gave to his son, Christopher Robin, in the 1920s. They became the inspiration for the fanciful adventures that Milne penned for Christopher Robin, and which still entertain millions of children and adult readers today.

The stuffed animals live in a climate-controlled glass display case and visitors to the library can view them for free. The quintet range in height from 25-inches (Eeyore) to 4 ½-inches (Piglet) and remain in well-used and well-loved condition.

Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
