Family Trails

The entrance to the Wind in the Willows experience, with the doorway surrounded by a low wall and fence, and surrounded by a 3D map. Through the door, light streams through around a model willow tree.

Visited today for my 89th birthday. The Wind in the Willows –just too wonderful for words.

Museum Visitor

The Wind in the Willows exhibition is wonderful. Really enjoyed by our Grandchildren and us!

Family Visitors

The museum has also created its own delightful range of Wind in the Willows products including stationery, toys and gifts. These are available to buy in our retail shop and are also available to trade customers via wholesale.

The ‘Wind in the Willows’ gallery is based on the 1908 book by Kenneth Grahame. It draws upon the original illustrations by EH Shepard under licence from The EH Shepard Trust.

The 3D Gallery experience was created by Further Adventures Ltd.
