The Hidden Woods is an innovative pilot project which places the user in the centre of a long-forgotten woods, tasking them with bringing life and colour back to the landscape by revealing the stories that are waiting to be told, just out of reach.

Designed as a companion to The Story Museum’s real life Whispering Wood exhibition, we’re looking for digital travellers to take a wander through the woods and lose themselves in stories. Once you’ve completed your journey, we’ll ask you to provide feedback on your experience, allowing us to create new and exciting digital experiences for future visitors and users.
