Once Upon A Time

Enter the larger-than-life pages of seven classic tales: Anansi and the Talking Melon, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Elves and the Shoemaker, Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood, and Thumbelina.

The bilingual exhibit (English and Spanish) is a unique and educational experience that emphasizes the importance of reading and the significance of fairy tales throughout history.

Immersed in literature and story-telling, guests are encouraged to discover the meaning and history of tales they've known all their lives, as well as ones that may be new to them. Whether they crawl through the mole's 8-foot tunnel like Thumbelina, ride in the pumpkin coach like Cinderella, or climb a magical beanstalk like Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk, children will discover the underlying meaning of each story and experience the story's plot in the shoes of their favorite characters.

With seven storybook settings designed for children ages 1-10 years old and their caregivers, "Once Upon a Time" will take traditional story time to a new interactive level. The result is a three-dimensional, fully developed world that resonates with young visitors, while still appealing to the grown-ups in their lives who are just as fond of the beloved stories that were a major part of their own childhood.
