The Hidden Life of Trolls

May 1 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until September 26, 2021

$11.95 – $19.95

The whimsical nature of the Hidden Life of Trolls promises to entertain kids with magical touches at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens’ summer show, opening May 1.

The fantasy adventure includes passing under a stone bridge where a troll will test guests with riddles before they can pass. Follow giant footprints to a pond where a 12-foot troll bathes in the water, scrubbing his back with a branch. Look closely into the depths of another pond where you’ll spot an underwater troll. Throughout the exhibit, kids can keep watch for tiny doors where itsy-bitsy trolls make their home.

At home, kids ages 12 and younger can draw trolls, give them names and personalities and then upload their art to be included on the Troll Crossing website.

And to prep for your visit, go behind the scenes to witness how The Hidden Life of Trolls was created.

Timed tickets are $11.95 for kids and $19.95 for their grownups. Phipps remains open until 8 p.m. on Fridays.
