- Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there was a beautiful museum where children and adults alike could get lost in the wonder of fairy tales. The Abbey House Museum draws on its fabulous collection of children's books and illustrations to bring you this showcase of some of the best known fairy tales. You'll have the opportunity to go face to face with a big bad wolf, take a look at a miniature version of Cinderella's carriage and see an oil lamp that just might hold a genie! Learn all about the history of fantasy writing and understand where some of your best loved characters came from at this exciting exhibition.
