Wee Faerie Village
Wee Faerie Village Presents WHIMSICAL KINGDOMS
The Castles, Towers, and Palaces of Fiction’s Greatest Princes & Princesses (and perhaps a few Sorcerers and Witches)
Ready to romp through some royal realms?
Follow the Wee Faerie Trail as it leads from one Whimsical Kingdom to the next; from Cinderella’s enchanted castle to Rapunzel’s towering tower to Aladdin’s shimmering palace—all fashioned with an emphasis on natural materials.
Whimsical Kingdoms will feature over two-dozen faerie-scaled castles, towers, and palaces on the Museum’s campus that celebrate fiction’s greatest princes and princesses in a new and imaginative way. Imagine fanciful edifices detailed with mini moats, pinecone pinnacles, fungus fortresses, acorn-topped timbered towers, bark-covered buttresses, fluttering feather flags, driftwood drawbridges…the list goes on and on. Who lives in these Whimsical Kingdoms? The Prince Charmings, Cinderella, Aladdin, King Arthur, Robin Hood, The Little (Petite) Prince, Price Caspian (Narnia), Snow White, Mulan, Belle, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Pea, The Snow Queen, The Frog Princess, Tiger Lily (Peter Pan), Rapunzel, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Dracula … the list goes on and on. Some characters have lived in their royal residence from birth. Others have earned their new stately abode through marriage or magic. Either way, the faerie version of these places, keenly crafted of natural materials and set within the nooks and crannies of the Museum’s campus, will present grand structures of wonder…as well as a glimpse into the stories from which they derive.
