“state-of-the-art entertainment and educational experience offers visitors the  opportunity to tour scenes from the famed literary world of Narnia. Through  authentic costumes, props and set dressings from the magical Narnia films, visitors will enter a three-dimensional world that combines the wonders of science with aspects of fantasy.

“Narnia scenes and  characters will captivate visitors and take them on a journey of discovery. Can  animals communicate with humans? Can we really manipulate the climate? How does  our existence impact the Earth? These are but a few of the science-related  questions raised in the exhibition that will challenge people to think about  how they live today.”
