This exhibit is so much fun and, if you are in or near Denver, you still have time to catch it this weekend!
You can explore the legends and possible sources of all your favorite mythical creatures. Start off in the sea with the Kraken, mermaids and sea serpents. Discover the griffin along the ancient silk road. Unicorns from the east and the west make their appearance. There is a station where you can rearrange the bones of a mammoth into the skeleton of a plausible giant cyclops. Rocs, Elephant birds, winged horses and, of course, dragons. There are dragons of western Europe, including behind the scenes displays and video showing the making of the dragons in the Eragon movies. And there are a wealth of east Asian dragons too, embroidered, paraded and storied.
Don't miss it!
