Museum of Russian Fairy Tales "Once Upon a Time" in Moscow
April 29, 2016 20:43


What the children's fairy tale museum harbours is not rare book editions and antiques but kind, engrossing, wise, and illuminative fairy tales, which pass alive from parents to offsprings.
The Museum of the Russian Fairy Tales collects and stores wonderful stories and fairy tales. It was established by the Russian Family Charity Foundation. The museum guides give performances, which tell children about life and cultures of various peoples. Traditions and values of numerous countries and continents, the epos and adventures of their daredevils form the basis of children's journeys. The organizers implement more than twenty excursions based on Russian folk fairy tales and legends, European writers's tales and stories from Slavic mythologies. In every program there is a certain intrigue which is supported throughout the entire game. In the course of a performance children tackle challenges, manifest ingenuity at solving riddles and help fantastic characters in their hard battle against the evil. For full immersion children are dressed up in folk costumes that make them direct participants of the events.
Interactive programs are intended for children from three to twelve years of age. The museum collection includes over 400 books and costumes, household items and theatrical requisite objects.
The Nikolay Mashovets Fairy Tale House is a part of the All-Russian Association of Children's Museums and the international association Hands On! Europe. Presently there are two branches of it in Moscow, namely Buratino-Pinocchio's Museum (opened in 2000) and the Museum of Russian Fairy Tales (opened in 2005) in the Izmaylovsky Kremlin.
The organization has developed charitable programs for orphan children and disabled children. They carry out guest performances for pupils of kindergartens and hospitals, boarding schools and schools. Over the years of its existence the Fairy Tale House has been visited by about 650 thousand children from different regions of Russia.
Visitors are required to have replaceable footwear for walking in the museum. Taking part in excursions is by previous appointment.
The address of the Children's Museum of Fairy Tales: Pavilion 8 of the ENEA, 119, Prospect Mira Avenue, near the VDNKh metro station in Moscow.
Open hours: from 10 am to 5:30 pm every day.
