The Rosenbach Museum and Library, in Philadelphia, hosts the Maurice Sendak Collection, an extensive archive of original drawings and manuscripts. $10; open daily, except Mondays and national holidays. The Sendak collection is open for research by appointment, though the Maurice Sendak Gallery always displays works from the collection (and it’s free today). Through July 15, the From Pen to Publisher: The Life of Three Sendak Picture Books exhibit covers his 1960, 1988, and 2003 publications.
