Our favourite fairy tales are revisited this year. A spell cast by the evil fairy Carabosse has left the tales all mixed up with characters and storytelling objects in the wrong stories. Young visitors must ward off the spell and put the stories back in order. This magical wolrd features vintage toys, decorative art objects and mysterious books from an enchante library.

In a workshop, students learn the essential elements of storytelling. Using their imaginations, they work in teams to create their own tales.
