Fairy tales, storytelling, and reading aloud have inspired the imaginations of children for centuries. Now everyone can experience the larger than life storybooks illustrating fairy tales from different lands in this exciting exhibit at EdVenture. Explore the playful, interactive elements in Anansi and the Talking Melon, a tale from Africa. Play a harpsichord or sit at the grand banquet table in the castle of Beauty and the Beast, a popular tale from France. Try on Cinderella’s glass slipper or make shoes like the Elves and the Shoemaker. The whole family will discover the important role fairy tales have played in our lives. This exhibit runs through January 3 and is free with museum admission.
