A national touring exhibition dedicated to fairy tales, “Once Upon A Time: Exploring the World of Fairy Tales,” opens Saturday, June 5 at the Upcountry History Museum, the museum announced in a release. The exhibit will be on display until Sept. 19.
Visitors of all ages can explore the fairytale worlds of six popular stories from around the world in six large-scale displays. These include a castle for a giant, an African jungle, a magic beanstalk and even a pumpkin coach.
The exhibits come from the stories “Beauty and the Beast,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Anansi and the Talking Melon,” “Cinderella,” “Lon Po Po,” and “The Elves and the Shoemaker.”
“Once Upon A Time” provides an interactive learning experience in a 3-D world, encouraging reading and understanding the history of fairytales.
“Whether climbing the beanstalk like Jack, setting the table in the Beast’s banquet hall, or riding in the pumpkin coach like Cinderella, children will discover the fundamental meaning of each story as they literally walk in the shoes of their favorite characters,” the museum stated.
