Enter a mysterious indoor forest where every tree has a story to tell and a secret to reveal.
But first you must complete a challenge. Can you advise Anansi the cunning spider? Or lift a curse from across the land? Pick the perfect gift for the Norse gods? Or prove yourself fit to wear Arthur’s crown?
Listen to the wind in the branches and the whispers in many languages as you trace the ancient roots of story. Pause in a peaceful clearing to hear live or recorded stories from across the globe. Enjoy myths and legends, fables and fairy tales told from person to person down the centuries, and now to you.
These spoken stories continue to delight, and shape many of the books and comics, films and games we love today.
The Whispering Wood is an immersive exhibition with something for all ages.
