This coming April, The Carle is proud to be the first American museum to feature the beloved bear in Paddington™ Comes to America! From 32 Windsor Gardens in London, Paddington brings with him stories of humor, compassion, and marmalade. The exhibition commemorates the 60th anniversary of the first book by Michael Bond, A Bear Called Paddington. Fifteen novels, numerous publishing formats, two television series and two successful movies have ensured the loveable bear from Darkest Peru remains as popular as ever. Original art by Paddington’s various illustrators provides comparisons of the iconic bear over time. Guests can “travel” to Paddington’s favorite sites in London posted around the gallery, stamping special London bus passes at each location.

This exhibition is generously supported by HarperCollins Children’s Books, global publisher of the Paddington Bear books since 1958 and YOTTOY Productions, long term toy partner of Paddington in the US since 1995.
