The Rosenbach Museum & Library marks the 150th anniversary of this internationally beloved story in fantastic fashion.

Part Two, Alice in Philly-land, will shed light on the story of Alice and Philadelphia, including the internationally renowned purchase of the manuscript at auction by Philadelphia book dealer A.S.W. Rosenbach for a world-record price (closing March 27).

Part Three, Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk? Lewis Carroll's Riddles, Puzzles and Games, will give visitors the opportunity to learn more about Carroll as a mathematician and puzzle lover, trying their hand at some of his mind-bending inventions in an interactive gallery.
