Alice's Games

The 4th Exhibition Gallery, Life Science Hall
March 15 - June 2, 2014

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be.
And what it wouldn't be, it would.
─ Lewis Carroll ─
ince 1868, "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" has entertained children and adults alike and the adaptations of it have reflected the sensibilities of the time. In the story, 7-year-old Alice the protagonist must find her way through the strange place called "Wonderland". The story is also full of fanciful character, each one adding a bit of humor and dimension to the plot.

'Alice's Games' exhibition ─ a mixture of literature, science, and entertainment ─ is based on the plot and characters in this classic story "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll. The exhibition provides rich, developmentally appropriate learning experiences in science and literacy for people of any ages, especially for children and their parents.

In this award-winning exhibition 'Alice's Games', follow the White Rabbit through the rabbit hole to enter the amazing world of Wonderland, join the Mad Hatter at his tea party to experiment with liquid densities, play with light and shadow in the Pool of Tears, and play with relative size as optical illusions make one shrink and grow. You will experience most plots of the story in Area A.

Give a hand to Jungle Speed Raving Rabbids. Play the roles of Mike and Sulley spending time at Monsters University and of Spongebob endeavoring to Plankton in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. Take part in the rivalry between Woody and Buzz Lightyear in the amusement park. You can even keep a baby panda of your own! In Area B, Kinect, which makes you feel like the protagonist of the stories, brings all these games to life in extraordinary new ways with no controller required.

The exhibit inspires curiosity, encourages exploration, and helps make the unknown more familiar, maybe even logical, and certainly fun. This classic of children's literature shows the popularity of the Alice story. Area C includes some editions of the first text. Other items on display includes illustrated versions of the book, texts that reference Alice, and material, such as Alice chess set, teacups, album covers, play scripts and doss, from popular culture.

Join us to take a journey of science and literature, and welcome to the Alice Fans web site which was created for the fans of "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland".
