Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!

Imagine you are visiting the home of Madame Curious. Life sized animals will point you to eight small galleries, where curiosity is your only guide.  Each themed chamber tells the story of her collection—strange and wonderful objects from near and far, natural and man-made, ancient and modern.

Explore at your own pace, as you open ninety drawers to uncover rare treasures and get hands-on with what’s on the shelves. In our family-friendly space for all ages, when we say “Do Touch,” we mean it! We learn by touching, and in this discovery gallery, there are no boundaries to your imagination!

Due to COVID-19, we’re passing out gloves when you visit this exhibit.
