The Big Book of Monsters


Explore magical maps and mysterious landscapes with your own personal monster in this exciting installation inside our ground floor pod.

A giant, interactive book allows children big and small to strike a pose and make a shadow monster, and then, add their own page to a spooky story, by moving words across the screen.

Starting at Skull Island, choose from various destinations on the interactive map to start your own monster story and begin the adventure.

The interactive book includes sound, light and technology to create a captivating and immersive experience.

The Big Book of Monsters has been designed and built by ITHACA Studio and will feature as part of our Monsters! The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly exhibition until January 2019.
