Embark on an enchanting journey as kids explore perception in Alice's Wonderland.
This hands-on exhibition takes little adventurers down the rabbit hole, immersing them in optical illusions, word play, physics, and math. Based on Lewis Carroll's classic tale, this interactive exhibit introduces numeracy, literacy, and science in a playful way. Solve word puzzles and join the Mad Hatter's Tea Party for math-themed fun. A perfect opportunity for learning and bonding between children, parents, and carers. Don't miss this wondrous opportunity to dive into Wonderland!
While you're exploring the exhibition why not utilise the self-guided tour kits and complete the Treasure Hunt.

Visitors who prefer a low-sensory environment can come and experience the Alice's Wonderland exhibition outside of regular hours to avoid the crowds. There will be no special-effect lighting or sounds during these sessions and reduced visitor numbers.
Saturday 16 December – Sunday 4 February
The card-guards of the Queen of Hearts have taken the characters from Alice’s story and hidden them around the library and museum. Find them all and help Alice to get home safely.
When you visit the interactive Alice’s Wonderland exhibition, be sure to pick up a family fun self-guided tour kit from the loans desk. The kit includes instructions and resources for fun, science themed activities that you can engage in as a family whilst touring the exhibition.
