The Amazing Castle Exhibit @ The Youth Museum of Souther West Virginia
Feb 12 @ 10:00 am – Jun 14 @ 6:00 pm

The Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia brings to life extraordinary hands-on adventures!

Visitors to “The Amazing Castle” are transported to a magical place and time—inside the castle’s stone walls lays a happy and peaceful little community. They are invited ti explore the exhibit and its eight themed areas, where they will encounter graphic panels introducing seven citizens who are part of the castle community.

They can don costumes and become lords and ladies, castle villagers, or even “HiJinx the Jester” and then they can explore one of the Royal Workshops and pretend to be a carpenter, tailor, gardener, or even a cook in the castle keep.

“The Amazing Castle” is designed for visitors of all ages and is on loan from the © 2019 Minnesota Children’s Museum. All rights reserved.
