Take the kids to see 'Magic Worlds' in Newcastle
Date Posted: 12/03/14
From March 22nd to June 22nd, the V&A Museum of Childhood’s touring exhibition of Magic Worlds will be coming to the Great North Museum: Hancock.
Kids will love this fantastical exhibition that will take them deep into the captivating realms of magic and invite them to immerse themselves in imaginary worlds of fairies, witches, wizards, dragons, magicians, elves and illusionists.
On display will be a variety of tricks, magic costumes, paintings and beautifully illustrated books and posters all to do with magic. There will also be magical games, optical toys and dramatic puppets for kids to play with.
Some of the highlights of the 200 objects on display at the exhibition are Sooty and his wand, the Cottingley fairy photographs, Derren Brown’s Lottery Balls and the bullet-catching plate used by magician Chung Ling Soo (1861-1918).
Make a short break out of your visit to the exhibition by staying at a Newcastle hotel.
