Don’t miss your final chance to be whisked off to a fantastical land in The Lost World of Dragons exhibit at The Strong museum. The exhibit remains on view through Monday, September 7. For thousands of years, dragons have captured the hearts and imaginations of cultures throughout the world. Explore the myths and lore that surround dragons—including stories from Norway and ancient China—and create your own dragon tales with shadow puppets.

The Lost World of DragonsTake pictures with seven moving dragons of all shapes and sizes, such as a regal red dragon, a slithering sea serpent, and the legendary wyvern. Then hop into the harness on a dragon, hold on tight, and soar through the air on a virtual flight. Enter “Smaug’s Lair” to see his piles of gold and treasures, and take a seat on the throne. Explore the forge and alchemy laboratory, complete a series of mix-and-match and magnetic dragon puzzles, and draw your own dragon.

The Lost World of Dragons is included with general museum admission fees. Presented in the Fidelis Care Gallery. The exhibit is developed by Stage Nine Exhibitions and distributed by Exhibits Development Group.
