Experience the enchantment of a Fairy’s dream home in Colleen Moore’s Fairy Castle, now more magical than ever thanks to a recent conservation project.
This elaborate house full of hand-crafted miniatures and artifacts was completed by silent film star Colleen Moore in 1935, and came to live at MSI in 1949. The Fairy Castle has delighted generations with its tiny treasures and imaginative presentation, representing the contributions of celebrities, artisans and craftspeople around the world. These include a painting by Walt Disney himself; the tiniest bible ever to be written, dating back to 1840; and ancient statues more than 2,000 years old.
Witness the magic of the Fairy Castle for yourself at the Museum and take a magical audio tour through its whimsical, intricate rooms.
Colleen Moore's Fairy Castle will reopen in April 2014.
