The Fantastic in the Fine Arts: Colleen Moore’s Fairy Castle
In order to go on this trip, you have to pretend to shrink down to only 5 inches tall, so that you can experience the enchantment of this tiny home, filled with the magic of fairies and fairy tales!
Take the tour! You will discover that the miniaturization is more than turrets and battlements, it’s a peek into a magical palace. All comers are treated to the exquisite art of shrinking objects. They seem to be reduced to their smallest possible size where the human eye can still notice impeccable details.
For a taste of the Fairy Castle, check out the museum’s picture tour and read about the twelve different views of this magical miniaturization.
