      EVENT DETAILS
      Do You Believe In Magic?

      Bristol Museum & Art Gallery's major winter exhibition, 'Do you believe in magic?' features over 200 fascinating objects and stories that reveal how magic has been used to heal, hunt and harm across the world. 'Do you believe in magic?' will introduce you to the lives of those who practise it, the objects that embody it and the beings that exist between the natural and the supernatural. From ancient uses of witchcraft, to belief in the power of gods and ancestors, this exhibition explores the complex intersection between magic, science and religion. Extraordinary artefacts have been carefully selected from the museum's collections including European works of art, North American shamanic artefacts, magical animals, delicately preserved plants, beautiful clothing and spiritual figurines. From Ancient Egyptian amulets and Mexican charms promising protection, to items collected from the altar of a practising witch, this exhibition will uncover new ways of understanding worlds beyond our own. Exhibition entry is 'pay what you think'. 'Do you believe in magic?' is sponsored by InsideAsia Tours.

      Cost: pay what you can
