This year marks the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,’ and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas will not let the landmark year go by unnoticed. The Center hosts an exhibition that follows the creation and inspiration of the original Alice and the transformations of the character and her story over time.

The elusive White Rabbit’s path will guide you through the exhibition that includes one of the few surviving copies of the first edition of Carroll’s novel, as well as a 1933 paper film strip.

The exhibition opens to the public on Tuesday at 10 a.m. and entry is free to the public (but donations are welcome). The exhibition galleries are open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday and until 7 p.m. on Thursday. The galleries are also open from noon-5 p.m. during the weekend. Tours are given daily at noon.
