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 reveal Anansi the cunning spider? Or discover the curse across the land? Pick the perfect gift for the Norse gods? Or prove yourself fit to wear Arthur’s crown? And can you spot the shadow animals hiding amongst the trees?

Follow Firouz the Hare on an immersive audio trail through the Whispering Wood to trace the ancient roots of story. Sample lively tellings of stories from across the globe: 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. Please note that the audio tour is for this Gallery is delivered via headphones and lasts 23 minutes.
