Once Upon a Time... Exploring the World of Fairy Tales is a unique and educational exhibit focusing on the power and significance of fairy tales throughout history and from around the world. From an African jungle to a giant’s castle, explore larger-than-life pages of seven favorite fairy tales. Enter via a magical portal into a fabulous storybook kingdom, and learn the meaning and history of tales you’ve known all your life and others that may be new.
Get into the story as you cross a wooden bridge in "Anansi and the Talking Melon," play a harpsichord in "Beauty and the Beast," try on a glass slipper in "Cinderella," work at a cobblers bench in "The Elves and the Shoemaker," climb a beanstalk in "Jack and the Beanstalk," catch a wolf in "Lon Po Po," and crawl through a mole’s hole in "Thumbelina."
