Thank you to UniBank for sponsoring our delightful summer exhibit, Alice's Wonderland: a most curious adventure. The exhibit is now closed.
Journey down the rabbit hole to explore Alice's Wonderland in this award-winning traveling exhibition, based on Lewis Carroll's classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The exhibit inspires curiosity, encourages exploration, and helps make the unknown more familiar, maybe even logical, and certainly fun!
Here's a peek at some of the exhibit highlights:
- Crawl through the rabbit hole and experience the sense of falling in Down, Down, Down and discover where you might end up if you fell through the earth in Digging to China.
- Enter the Hall of Doors, where perspectives and heights seem to shift in a curious way. Peek through the keyholes of ten doors to discover even more surprises.
- Encounter the Queen and King of Hearts in the lovely garden and explore geometry and physics with a series of unusual croquet grounds.
- Explore the changing of size and appearance in several exhibits, a theme central to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
- Join a Mad Tea Party, where science has been substituted for the Hatter's mad nonsense.
