Story Time Magic

Designed to inspire a love of reading, Story Time Magic is a new innovative 5,000-square-foot early childhood exhibit!

The Once Upon a Time gallery brings beloved stories to life through play and exploration. Children can explore Winnie-the-Pooh’s tree house, play in Peter Rabbit’s Garden, help build the homes of the Three Little Pigs, present a puppet show in Old MacDonald’s Farm and go inside the pages of the beloved book, Good Night Moon. Filled with cozy reading nooks and small world play experiences, this imaginative space will use books, songs, poems and folktales to encourage a love of reading and promote early literacy skills.

In addition, at Story Time Theater children can perform scenes from their favorite books using props and costumes provided in the adjacent Back Stage Magic, a “green room” complete with dressing tables, costume carts, prop boxes and a rehearsal stage. Story Time Theater will also be used for professional theater performances and for a daily story time experience.
