  • For we who love Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, a visit here is almost like a trip through the wardrobe. I am so thankful for the exhibit here. I hope everyone who feels the same will support the effort.
  • What a fantastic place. View C.S. Lewis' and Tolkien's desks... where they wrote and created so many fantasy universes. See the actual "Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe" wardrobe from C.S. Lewis! Learn about the inklings and how they turned the world on its imaginative ear. A slew of first-hand documents here where are the great writers shared ideas and encourage each other on. Irreplaceable and brilliant.
