Oh, the weather outside is frightful…especially if you’re in a land cursed by the winter-loving White Witch. Today is the Second Day of HMNS – for 12 days, we’re featuring a different fun video that previews or goes behind-the-scenes of a holiday museum activity, here on the blog (or, you can get a sneak peek at all the videos on 12days.hmns.org – we won’t tell.)

For our second video, we take you into the enchanted winterized world of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition. Wondering if it will snow again this year? It’s snowing every day in this exhibit, located at the museum’s new satellite, the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land. You can also catch a glimpse of artifacts from series author C.S. Lewis’ personal study and experience exciting environments such as the famous attic and wardrobe. Visitors will also encounter frozen waterfalls and other interactive and instructive elements. This special exhibition is a truly captivating and entertaining experience for all ages.

Click play to preview this exciting exhibition!

Happy Holidays!

    Overall, I enjoyed this exhibit. However, there were two rather glaring errors in the material presented. First: C S Lewis did not invent the concept of the Faun. In fact, these mythical creatures date back at least to the ancient Greeks (part man, part goat, the type specifically mentioned in the exhibit). http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/faun

    Second: arches were not invented for use in medieval European castles. The ancient Romans made extensive use of arches in their architecture, though I do not know if other more ancient cultures may have used them prior to the Romans (my degree is in Roman, not earlier, civilizations). This article indicates there may be evidence of pre-Roman arches: http://www.jstor.org/pss/3963117

    Overall, the visit was lots of fun, but a bit better fact checking on such easy topics would be fantastic.
