Alice in Wonderland Victorian illustrationIn 1865, Lewis Carroll published Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This tale of a young girl and her fantastic adventures in a fairytale world quickly became a hit with young and old alike in Victorian England and America. Together with your 3, 4, or 5 year old, hear this tale again, in the historic setting of the Flynn Mansion. Then tour the house and participate in hands-on crafts and activities relating to the story. At the end of the program, enjoy a snack inspired by the story.
