MAGIC, mystery and mischief are steaming up at the Workshops Rail Museum with its Wizards Express event.

Young wand-masters can enjoy some fantasy fun with the magical event that will be featured at the North Ipswich venue across these school holidays.

Families can be entertained by the Workshops Wizard with his fanciful tales and quirky tricks to delight the young and young at heart.

Visitors are also welcome to make their way through the Starlight Labyrinth, before getting creative with hands on with activities, such as wand and spider making, magical creature plasticine sculpturing, plus puzzles and games.

Director of The Workshops Rail Museum Andrew Moritz said the museum team was looking forward to providing an event that mashed fiction and fact for school holiday enjoyment.

"The world of fantasy is prevalent in literature for children and adults alike and therefore it's fun for us to be able to create an experience for young museum visitors around this captivating genre," he said.

For little wizards that have run out of puff, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone will be showing continuously in the Museum theatrette.

The event will be held from tomorrow until July 14. For more information and ticket prices, phone 3432 5100 or visit theworkshops.qm.qld.gov.au.

Children will be enthralled with activities on offer over the holidays.
