The Amazing Castle

May 18 - September 8, 2024

Travel back in time to a fanciful, medieval village filled with opportunities for problem-solving, storytelling, and imaginative play. Plant and harvest your own vegetables in the garden then build a chair or make your own design in the carpenters' workshop. Use a metal patch to fix a hole in the blacksmith workshop, and dress in costumes to role-play as lords, ladies, and castle villagers.

Visitors to The Amazing Castle, a bilingual hands-on exhibit, are transported to a magical place and time. Inside the castle’s stone walls lies a happy and peaceful little community where every citizen has a special job to do.

As visitors explore The Amazing Castle and its eight themed areas, they will encounter graphic panels introducing seven citizens who are part of the castle community. As they move through the castle, visitors can playfully explore ideas related to community life. Children will experience the interconnectedness of individuals as they interact with friends, family, and other visitors. The Amazing Castle is designed for visitors of all ages.
