Alice in Wonderland at the Morgan Library & Museum
We were given free tickets to the Morgan Library & Museum for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.
Melia's view: Alice in Wonderland at the Morgan Library & Museum, wow! It was really cool and interesting. I don't remember that much about the book, but I like the Disney cartoon version of the movie. It was fascinating to learn about Lewis Carroll and how he came to write Alice in Wonderland. It was cool to see a picture of him too. He didn't look anything like I thought he would look. I didn't know that the book was originally called Alice's Adventures Underground. At the museum, you could listen to a recording of somebody reading that version. The words on the screen were hard to read though, and I couldn't really understand the accent of the person reading it so I only listened to a little. They also had a lot of drawings from different versions of the books. Some of the drawings were kind of strange. In one one, Alice had a really long stretched out neck. It was so weird. Some of the drawings were good though. I really liked this one where there was an original black and white sketch of Alice and a color drawing of Alice side by side. The exhibit really made me want to go watch the movie Alice in Wonderland again.
