Open from 20th July to 4th September 2021
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!
Rare items on display include a beanbag chair from the mid 1970’s, a working Mr Bump radio from 1979, a Mr Tickle mirror from 1980 and 2 old records with actor, Arthur Low narrating the stories.
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.
