The Secret of Kells

(Included with Museum general admission, no tickets required.)

Magic, fantasy, and Celtic mythology come together in this Academy Award-nominated animated feature about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times.

“The Irish import takes its inspiration from, of all things, the 12th-century-old Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript transcribed by Celtic monks. The stirring tale, with its startlingly vibrant, mainly hand-drawn animation, serves as a valuable reminder that one doesn't always need 3-D to make an image pop.” —Hollywood Reporter
