Ready to Join?

Join me for the do you believe in magic ? - exhibition at theProtected content and let's have a cuppa and a chat at a cafe nearby after.

This is what is says on the museum's website:

"Magic is a fundamental part of the human experience which crosses time and cultures.

Our major winter exhibition, Do you believe in magic? features over Protected content objects and stories that reveal how magic has been used to heal, hunt and harm across the world.

We will introduce you to the lives of those who practise it, the objects that embody it and the beings that exist between the natural and the supernatural.

From ancient uses of witchcraft, to belief in the power of gods and ancestors, this exhibition explores the complex intersection between magic, science and religion.

Extraordinary artefacts have been carefully selected from our collections including European works of art, North American shamanic artefacts, magical animals, delicately preserved plants, beautiful clothing and spiritual figurines.

From Ancient Egyptian amulets and Mexican charms promising protection, to items collected from the altar of a practising witch, Do you believe in magic? uncovers new ways of understanding worlds beyond our own."

Entrance Fee: Pay what you think.

Hope to see you there :) !
