The feature exhibits at the St. Louis Magic House Children’s Museum never cease to amaze me! They are always packed with learning, fun, and adventure, and my entire family enjoys each and every moment whenever we make a visit!

 

The previous exhibit showcasing sights and sounds from ‘The Magic School Bus Kickin’ Up A Storm’ was so awesome (>>click HERE<< to see our fun) that we could not wait to check out the museum’s newest exhibit!

‘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. It allows kids and adults alike to learn the history behind each tale and discover new meanings and life lessons they might not have been known before. It is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on exhibit that is also the first nationally touring exhibit devoted exclusively to fairy tales and their cultural significance. Anansi and the Talking Melon, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Elves and the Shoemaker, Jack and the Beanstalk, Lon Po Po and Thumbelina are all featured to explore.

Since Lady T is the ‘princess baby’ of the family, she felt right at home on the balcony of the life-size Beauty and the Beast castle!

I instantly fell in love with this: Cinderella’s carriage!! There’s a virtual window inside that brings the arrival to the ball to life, and there’s also a costume chest for younger children to dress as their favorite characters from the story!

The exhibit was a blast, and afterwards we decided to stay for the day for some more fun!  After we left, the kids practically begged to return — and I had such a great time in the land of fairy tales myself, that I am more then happy to grant their wishes! :)
