The museum is commemorating 50 years since the first Mr Men book was published in 1971 with a display bursting with colour and familiar, funny characters.

Find out how Roger Hargreaves’ Mr Men series began with Mr Tickle and his extraordinary long arms!

The museum will be running a competition to create your own loveable character during the summer holidays, and there will be a chance to win some Mr Men prizes!  Be sure to keep an eye out on the museum’s social media for more competition details in the coming weeks.
