Magical exhibitions

“Alice in Wonderland” at Château Guillaume-le-Conquérant

Exposition Alice au Pays des Merveilles au château Guillaume-le-Conquérant pendant les  Féériques de Falaise

Until January 7, on the occasion of the storytelling exhibition " Alice in Wonderland ", the young Alice and her funny acolytes take possession of the dungeons of the Falaise Castle.

Embark on a wonderful journey into the world of the famous tale, in its version illustrated by Benjamin lacombe, thanks to an exceptional staging: illustrations by the artist, light effects, soundscapes and video projections.

“An animated pop-up world” at the Musée des Automates

From December 2 to January 7, the Falaise Automata Museum, in partnership with Julien Laparade from the Oh pop-up workshop, invites you to discover its new exhibition dedicated to animated books.

The novel “Alice in Wonderland” never ceases to fascinate and inspire. As proof, many creators and illustrators wanted to interpret Lewis Carroll's fable in their own way, by offering various versions of Alice in pop-up books. A young, passionate bookseller and lover of paper in all its forms, Julien Laparade invites you to rediscover this story through a unique exhibition in the magical settings of the Musée des Automates de Falaise!
