MAY 14, 2011 -- Beginning Friday, May 27, visitors of the Magic House can experience their own adventure in Wonderland with Alice's Wonderland, an interactive traveling exhibit created by the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose. Based on Lewis Carroll's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this exhibit gets children "curiouser and curiouser" about subjects like math and science as they encounter 2,500 square feet of hands-on experiences, meet favorite characters from the book and relive some of Alice's most extraordinary adventures.
Like Alice, visitors of the exhibit take a trip down the rabbit hole and "fall" into a world filled with wonder and curiosities. Children can explore shadows in the Pool of Tears, experience optical illusions in the Hall of Doors, learn about animation at a Caucus Race, serve up fractions at a Mad Tea Party, manipulate time with a Crazy Clock, discover camouflage in the Mushroom Forest, play a game of Crazy Croquet with the Queen of Hearts and much more.
Alice's Wonderland is free with museum admission and will be at The Magic House until Nov. 6. The Magic House is located at 516 S. Kirkwood Road, Kirkwood, Mo., 63122. Call 314-822-8900 or visit their website for details.
