THE MORGAN ANNOUNCES EXTENDED VIEWING HOURS FOR ALICE: 150 YEARS OF WONDERLAND
The Morgan Library & Museum is pleased to announce extended hours for the final weekend of the popular exhibition, Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland. The museum will be open at the following times during Columbus Day weekend:

The exhibition takes visitors on an unforgettable journey exploring one of the greatest tales ever told, Lewis Carroll’s enchanting Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of Alice’s publication in 1865 and sheds light on the genesis of the story and its extraordinary reception in England and abroad. The show includes the original manuscript of Alice, on special loan from the British Library, as well as original correspondence, unique drawings, hand-colored proofs, rare editions, vintage photographs, and important objects associated with the story—some never before exhibited.
*Please note that due to a prior commitment, Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript will not be on view at the Morgan on Monday, October 12. The manuscript will be in a pop-up display at the Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia from October 14 through 18.
