Highlighting themes from Lewis Carroll’s books and recent Alice In Wonderland movies, visitors will encounter a number of classic Alice scenes during their stroll through the woods.”

Cost is $5 for all (adults and children), and children 3 and younger and museum members are free. Purchase tickets in advance online or at the gate the day of the event.
