A very curious touring exhibition from Museums Victoria has taken up residence in Newcastle until July.

Alice’s Wonderland – A Most Curious Adventure, invites visitors to the Newcastle Museum for a trip down the rabbit hole to explore a range of scientific concepts in the world of Lewis Carroll’s literary classic.

The colourful, hands-on experience is designed to introduce children to everything from optical illusions and wordplay to physics, time-telling and maths.

“The wondrously bizarre and sometimes illogical story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the ideal inspiration for a playful exhibition that will ignite the natural curiosity of young children while also introducing them to a range of numeracy, literacy and science concepts,” Newcastle Councillor Elizabeth Adamczyk said

“This exhibition provides a fantastic option for parents looking for a fun, low-cost activity for toddlers and junior primary school-aged children during the upcoming holidays and is yet another example of the engaging, innovative program of touring and locally produced exhibitions that ensure Newcastle Museum continues to be a highly popular destination for locals and tourists of all ages.”

Tickets for Alice’s Wonderland – A Most Curious Adventure cost $10 for adults, $7 for concessions, $5 for children and $25 for a family of four. Children aged two and under are free.

Newcastle Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm and every day during the school holidays. The Alice’s Wonderland – A Most Curious Adventure exhibition runs until 10 July. Visit newcastlemuseum.com.au to find out more.
