Description

Venture boldly into Bram Stoker’s handwritten notes for Dracula (character and chapter outlines, chronologies, and more!) as Rosenbach staff explore what it took to create this (almost) inexorable villain. If that doesn’t sound too terrifying, hazard a look at The Rosenbach’s latest vampiric acquisitions: a colonial edition of Dracula made for India and the British colonies, and Spiritual Vampirism, printed in 1853, a volume shedding pertinent clues on the context of Stoker’s diabolical work.

Proof of Vaccination

Beginning on September 1, visitors and program attendees must show proof of vaccination along with all ​staff members and volunteers. With limited space for social distancing in our historic house and library, requiring proof of vaccination is the best way to protect the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

  • Visitors and program attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination along with their photo ID at the front desk. We will accept your original CDC issued card or a photo.
  • With the vaccine requirement in place, masks are not required but are encouraged and will be available for use.
  • Visitors who are unable to show proof of vaccination will not be able to visit The Rosenbach at this time, including unvaccinated children under the age of 12.
