Fairytale exhibition „Once upon a Time“

In the wondrous world of the fairytale forest, the mundane meets the mercurial. Here you have to adjust to a different flow of time and a different set of laws.
Visitors to the exhibition will follow in the footsteps of such fairytale heroes, encountering magical items, bountiful deeds, helping hands, laws of conversation, words to live by, the languages of birds and animals, monsters, heroes, pots of gold, the underworld, trials and tribulations, hard-fought victories, happy (perchance unhappy) endings and all the things one may read between the lines.
Adults will enjoy recalling the fairytales from their childhoods, finding out how the stories have changed over time and from place
