Wee Faerie Village
- Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Museum is closed through at least June 20 - including Café Flo. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back soon, but until then, please visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay updated. If you need a staff member, call or email 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.
