Storytelling can open the door to literacy and bring skills for life. It can unearth local history, giving a community pride in its sense of place. It can be a vibrant, creative performance art.
Mythstories highlights each of these aspects of storytelling, and more. It is the only museum of storytelling in the UK. Our innovative approach and our hands-on exhibits make our museum a unique space for creative learning.
