The Museum of Interesting Things

interestingThe Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling interactive demonstration/exhibition of antiques and inventions that goes to schools and events and inspires kids and adults to be curious. We bring back tinkering. I like to say it shows kids and adults that their ipods did not pop out of thin air! Like a circus…just no elephants.

“Eureka!” – The Invention Show
Exploring the industrial revolution and mechanical era, with interactive demonstrations of such items as the steam engine, Thomas Edison cylinder phonograph, windup toys, mechanical door bells and mechanical/gear based household items such as butter churns and apple peelers.
Coinciding with the NY/NJ/PA Core Content Curriculum Standards for Science, Social Studies, Technology and STEM/STEAM

The Windup Circus – “The History of Toys Show!”
Explore the evolution of fun from cymbal carrying monkeys to spinning tops that whistle, from board games to computer games, explore interesting inventions involving mechanical & windup toys and more! You might even experience some music, and do not be surprised if you get to actually play the whole time because audience members ARE allowed to touch!
We are a traveling show -Like a circus…just no elephants!
