Recover from Thanksgiving with a Magical Journey into Centuries-Old Folktales

Enter a magical place where aspects of modern day life in Vietnam interweave with centuries-old folktales. Created by the Children's Museum of Houston, Dragons & Fairies: Exploring Viet Nam Through Folktales provides a profusion of hands-on, interactive experiences about the culture of people in Vietnam.

Dragons & Fairies: Exploring Vietnam Through Folktales uses four traditional Vietnamese folktales as engaging vehicles to engage in conversations, activities and resources related to learning more about Vietnam’s people and heritage. The idea is to deepen the connection between the folktale and the enduring values and traditions they represent. These values include: the belief that most beautiful results come from simple means, respect for family and teachers, and the need to elevate the group over the individual.

The key goals of the exhibit are to share with children the rich cultural heritage and practices of the Vietnamese people by increasing appreciation of the culture, encouraging curiosity and openness about people who are different from them, revealing that different cultures have strengths others might discover and want to emulate, and assisting in unmasking the rich culture of Vietnam. We encourage you to bring your children to see this exhibit at Children’s Museum of Houston while it is on display!
