Pooh and friends.

Original Pooh

Pooh and friends are now part of the free exhibit, Treasures. While Pooh and friends are certainly a highlight, the entire exhibit is fabulous and includes Charles Dickens' desk, the umbrella that inspired Mary Poppins, an early globe, and an original copy of the Bill of Rights scribed by Thomas Jefferson.

Pooh.

Original Pooh

The children's area where Pooh is located is pretty small, but the display for Pooh and friends is nice and accessible. For Winnie the Pooh enthusiasts or for-hard Disney fans, it's worth a stop.
