From Friday 23 June to Sunday 9 July

Alebrije art trail

Violet wakes up one morning to find that she’s lost some of her memories. Help her go on a journey of rediscovery as she visits Alebrije, magical living statues that are guarding her memories.

Solve their riddles and reveal the characters in AR to complete the journey. This trail is an interactive experience, as you visit the characters (in any order) you’ll collect digital stamps, learn more about the story and be able to take special selfies with some AR characters. Then, when you’ve visited them all, you’ll be able to download a free digital storybook that concludes the story.

Older children can read an extract from the book at each stop and try to guess what memory each Alebrije is keeping. For younger children, we have created some simpler riddles that hint at the same answer.
