Wee Faerie Village

  • COVID-19 Update--Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed the Museum to the public through at least April 30, and have cancel all programs during this time. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon (and often!), but until then, we encourage you to visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to stay up-to-date about the Museum’s status and enjoy beautiful images, on-line exhibitions, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes videos. Should you need a staff member, call or email them as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends

October 3 through November 1

Visit the Museum this fall for our annual outdoor installation!

Awesome Wee Faerie Architecture! This is the twelfth year of autumnal family fun on the Museum’s grounds. From October 3 through November 1 three-dozen faerie-scaled architectural amusements will delight and inspire visitors as they travel along the Artists’ Trail. The theme is a playful, miniaturized take on ornamental buildings popular on country estates, parks, and gardens in the 18th and 19th centuries. Visitors will learn about different architectural styles from across the world as they gaze in awe at the artists’ whimsical creative skills.

Watch the Museum’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for updates!
