Storyland: A Trip through Childhood Favorites

Reading comes alive in Imagination Place through May 28, 2018

In this highly immersive and engaging exhibit from the Minnesota Children’s Museum, families discover the joy and power of reading at any age. Your children will step into the world of their favorite storybooks — building a snowperson and making snow angels in The Snowy Day, tucking in Peter Rabbit, and finding Spot.

Exhibit experiences including matching, rhyming, poetry and storytelling all help set the foundation for becoming literate by encouraging children to love books, learn words, tell stories, read everything, know letters, and hear sounds.

Featured books in the 1,500 square foot exhibit are The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, Abuela by Arthur Dorros, Tuesday by David Wiesner, and Where’s Spot? by Eric Hill.

All-day admission is $8 per person, free for children under 24 months, and free for Hardin Center members. Admission includes Imagination Place Children’s Museum and the Hardin Center’s exhibits.

This exhibit is perfect for field trips and groups. For group reservations or more information call (256) 543-2787, ext. 31 or email
