Exhibition: First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare

May 07 – 30, 2016 (Recurring Daily)
Times: Mon.-Sat., 9am-5pm; Sun., noon-5pm
Venue: North Carolina Museum of History
Area: Downtown Raleigh
Admission: Free

The exhibit will features the 1623 First Folio of Shakespeare, on national tour for the first time from the Folger Shakespeare Library. One of the most influential books in history, the First Folio includes 36 of Shakespeare’s plays, 18 of which had never been printed before. Without it, we might have lost "Macbeth," "Julius Caesar" and other plays. The N.C. Museum of History is the only stop in N.C. for the exhibit. Special programs will be held.
