At Wenham Museum, discover the magical world of Mary Poppins as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this classic Disney family film. Based on the books by P. L. Travers, Disney’s musical film Mary Poppins revolves around the Banks family and their nanny, who blows into London “on the East Wind” in 1910 and takes the family on a series of adventures while teaching them lessons about life and love along the way. Explore a whimsical 1910 nursery, climb on Admiral Boom’s house-ship, make your own chalk drawings like Mary’s friend Bert does, and see how much fun it can be to do chores and tidy up the nursery if you just add “a spoonful of sugar.”

Wool is a very ancient fiber that has been keeping us both warm and cool for thousands of years. It can be dense and fuzzy, or gossamer fine. It is used for clothes (both what you see and what you don’t), accessories, and even toys and dolls. In this exhibit we explore the versatility of wool, from cobwebby shawls to tough twill for military uniforms, tweed jackets to superfine dress fabric – woven, knitted, crocheted and felted – wool can do it all.
