Story Art & Museum

Imagination is the heart of it all

 Mission Statement

     Our mission is to inspire imagination by connecting 
       people with their cultural heritage through 
 performance, art and history.


   We tell stories. We play.
     We hear music. We play.  
                                                                            We write stories. We play.                                                                                    We see art. We play.     

     We act. We sing.

     We learn. We play.

​    

           Sharing what we create and imagine is fundamental 
         to our human story and to 
           Story Art & Museum’s purpose.

INSPIRE

Faith Wick's Fairyland

The museum is a self-guided and self-directed activity exhibiting story-related art. Figures created by artist Faith Wick are exhibited in creative settings or dioramas. Over 100 regionally and nationally recognized artists have contributed to our collection. 


Admission to the museum is free. Donations of $5 per person are suggested to help sustain the museum. 


The exhibit shares a tradition of sharing fairytales and historic figures which began on the Iron Range in 1948 as Fairyland Park in Marble, MN. The museum inspires memories and imagination for all ages.

             Alice in Wonderland

            The rabbit-hole went
            straight on like a tunnel    
            for some way, and then dipped
            suddenly down, so suddenly
            Alice had no moment
            to think about stopping

            to be a very deep well...
