Winnie at the Museum

The exterior of our Museum is pretty distinctive so it was very exciting to see it featured in a beautiful double page spread in the latest Winnie the Witch book! In ‘Winnie’s Dinosaur Day‘ by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul, the famous witch visits our museum to admire the dinosaurs on display and even goes back in time to meet a real, live Triceratops!

We celebrated the new book in October 2012 with a series of family events, including a visit from Korky Paul, Winnie’s illustrator. But now Oxford University Press are promoting the book with a special blog post about Winnie and the Museum of Natural History. It’s great to see the Museum’s architecture and collections inspiring authors and illustrators yet again.
