  • Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns & Mermaids @ Museum at Prairiefire: The world is full of stories about brave heroes, magical events and fantastic beings.

Others, we think, can bring us luck or joy. Together mythic creatures give shape to humankind’s greatest hopes, fears and most passionate dreams.
