What is it? Family-friendly museum celebrating the gentle art of spinning a good yarn.
Why go? Literary connections abound in Oxford and this place looks at the inspiration behind everything from hobbits and gyptians to mad hatters. Walk through a wardrobe door into Narnia, travel between story worlds, rediscover your favourite book characters and explore an enchanted library where you can wander between shelves and find yourself inside a story. This is hands-on family fun that will transport you into your favourite tales and introduce you to plenty more.
Don’t miss: The museum hosts loads of interesting talks, events and performances, as well as regular workshops, a comic club and adult-only nights of fairy tales for grown-ups.
