Become a Dreamer at the Museum of Make Believe!

The Museum of Make Believe will be able to realize our vision for the future thanks to the unwavering support of our community.

A fundraising campaign for Museum of Make Believe

The Museum of Make Believe is dedicated to preserving the timeless art of storytelling in a uniquely creative environment that is both ethereal and enchanting. Created by a team of artists and visionaries, the Museum of Make Believe offers a truly magical twist on the way contemporary art is experienced.  It will transport you to a place of magic and mystery where you can experience the charm of nostalgia, the power of storytelling, and the spark of imagination.

After traveling our exhibits to museums around the country, we are ready to build our own permanent home! We invite you to become a part of our whimsical world of handcrafted miniatures puppetry, dreamlike paintings, thematic lighting, costumes, film and sound, all depicting original ghost stories and fairy tales of the mystical and mythic.
