Event: -
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe come to life
Delve beyond the wardrobe and see props and more at the Chronicles of Narnia exhibition.

Narnia, exhibition
Explore the science behind Narnia at the exhibition.

After a successful showing in Sydney at the Powerhouse Museum, the touring exhibition is migrating to Melbourne from the 21st of November to the second of February. It will be hosted by the Pavilion at Docklands, not far from Harbourtown shopping centre.

[ADVERT]Since C.S. Lewis wrote the first book in the series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, in 1950, the tales of Narnia have become classics and gripped the imagination of several generations. The most recent film adaption in 2005 has seen to it that children today are as engaged by Narnia as their grandparents were.

Over 150 original props and articles of costumery used in the filming of Chronicles of Narnia trilogy will be on display. The exhibition is designed to be interactive where possible. There is no velvet rope to be found blocking visitors from firing a catapult, sitting on a replica of the White Witch's throne, lifting up swords used in the films and trying on armour.

The exhibition isn't just about gasping at the exquisite and intricate props used in the movies. There are also educational aspects - the science of fantasy. Learn about the physics of a catapult, the physiology of mythical creatures, why water freezes, how animals communicate and plenty more at the huge exhibition.

Tickets can be purchased in advance via Ticketmaster, with admission ranging from $13.90 to $20. Children under two years old are admitted free.
