The Amazing Castle

int(1704585600) string(23) "Sunday, January 7, 2024"

September 30th through January 7th, 2024

The Amazing Castle™ transports children and adults to a magical place and time— within the castle’s stone walls there exists a happy and peaceful little community where every citizen has a special job to do. As visitors explore The Amazing Castle and its eight themed areas, they will encounter seven citizens who are part of the castle community. From entertaining to sewing, each citizen plays a special role. As they move through the castle, visitors can playfully explore ideas related to community life and experience the interconnectedness of friends, family, and new acquaintances.

Travel back in time to a fancifal medieval village filled with opportunities for problem-solving, storytelling, and imaginative play. This is a wonderfully whimsical exhibit for ages 2-8.

Some Exhibit Activities include:

  • Plant and harvest your own vegetables in the garden
  • Build a chair or make your own design in the Carpenter’s Workshop
  • Use a metal patch to fix a hole in the Blacksmith’s Workshop
  • Don costumes and role-play as lords, ladies, and castle villagers

The Science Spectrum will make this fantastical exhibition available to the public from September 30th, 2023 to January 7th, 2024. This traveling exhibition will be located in the ExploraZone gallery on the ground floor of the Science Spectrum, and will be available during regular museum hours.

The Amazing Castle exhibit is included with standard museum admission.
