Tread carefully through Victor Frankenstein’s rooms in Ingolstadt, relive the birth of the monster, and learn about the scientific and medical innovations of the period that provided inspiration for Shelley. Listen to talks and join in with activities led by gothic experts, learn how Shelley’s Frankenstein has inspired popular culture since its publication in 1818, and more!
