Step off the page into a world of colour, characters and literary delights. You’ve discovered The Story Museum!
This is a place like no other with a labyrinth of immersive and classically themed rooms. Topple down the rabbit hole and take your place at the mad hatter’s tea party in Wonderland. Wild about Colour soaks up the vivid kaleidoscopic vision of 60s illustrator, Brian Wildsmith to stunning effect. And of course the ultimate in adventure - open the cupboard door, squeeze past fur coats and step out into snowy Narnia! Just be sure to say hello to Mr Tumnus.
The museum regularly produces new installations in collaboration with illustrators, and parents bring their littluns back time and time again for poetry and storytelling, or screenings of Disney classics in the museum cinema. The essential draw, however, is the incredible dressing up room. Choose from an entire universe of costumes, step out onto the red carpet and hear your self-appointed name announced for all to hear!

There is no place quite like the dressing up room at the story museum, it's truly something very special. And all that after you've stepped through the back of the wardrobe into Narnia. We got back time and time again and it never fails to disappoint, especially as they're always adding new stuff too.
