Wee Faerie Village2016



Visitors explore over thirty hand-crafted, faerie-sized homes. All ages marvel at the detail and craftsmanship as they visit prehistoric caves, pyramids, ancient temples, medieval cottages, and Victorian mansions throughout the Museum’s 13-acre campus.

Wee Faerie Village event is generously sponsored by the Donald Joffray Family and an anonymous grant.

This video was created by middle school student Michelle Shavnya. Michelle wanted to show people how much work goes into creating Wee Faerie Village.

Artists work nearly year-round to bring visitors their extraordinary creations.
