I saw the exhibit last summer at the Bodleian in Oxford. It's excellent. Nice to see it's going on tour. (Steath brag: And in Oxford, it was completely free - not $20 like in NYC)

It takes about an hour to see the whole thing, if you take time to pore over each display. Subtle and low key in that English way - in a section devoted to fan mail, there was a letter from a young "Terence Pratchett", but they didn't call attention to it in any way.
