The Story Museum

We aim to become a world centre for story and storytelling. We believe stories lie at the heart of our culture. They help us to develop the vital language, imaginative and emotive skills we need to understand the world and connect with each other.
We believe that a wide variety of stories is essential for children and young people in particular, to help them fulfil their potential. Our vision is that children should grow up ‘rich in stories’.
