Tolkien Exhibitions

From Tolkien Gateway

There have been many exhibitions about J.R.R. Tolkien's life and works, and new exhibitions are constantly being hold worldwide. Here is a list of some of them.

Many of Tolkien's unpublished materials (writings, drawings, manuscripts...) were first revealed to the public through these exhibitions, and are documented and commentated in their respective catalogues. One can expect to see still more of them in exhibitions in the coming years.
