The Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling interactive demonstration/exhibition of antiques and inventions inspiring innovation and creativity - learning from the past to create a better future. Our demonstrations are hands on. We let people touch some items and truly experience what life was like many years ago. We bring items that show what inventions led to ipods and other items in our everyday lives. There are 8 departments that coincide with the curriculum in our public schools as well as being fun and interesting for kids and adults! The departments are: Science, Math, Literature, Medical, Toys, Music, Household and Photography. We can also work with any age group & budget from grades 1 through 12, college students to senior citizens. Schools, hospitals, universities, galleries, parties, libraries, anywhere

Mission: The Museum of Interesting Things is an exhibition that demonstrates antiques and inventions. We provide lively, interactive programs that include a brief history of each item, as well as interesting and amusing facts. Our demonstrations are hands-on.

Clearly the right person to be one of only 2 people to wear the museum’s Lone Ranger Atomic Bomb Ring, would be The head of the NYC Fire Museum! And of course it would be fitting for him to hold the nose cone of the thermal nuclear B57 bomb! Firefighters rock...or better put, are the bomb!

Absolutely Love The Museum of Interesting Things!!
This Taiwanese museum with breathtaking scenery has a classic violin worth at US$10 million and a replica of the Fountain of Apollo, which took seven years to complete. (With hyperlinks of the Google 720°virtual reality images)
Thank you for sharing and caring.
DOC NYC will host a documentary called “Saving Brinton” today and tomorrow. It follows a man named Michael Zahs and his discovery of some of the oldest movies in the world (1895-1908) in an Washington Iowa basement and his adventures to save them. The films originally belonged to Frank Brinton, a showman and entertainer who showed these movies in the Midwest in the late 1890’s to 1910. In the Saving Brinton film, a lost Georges Mêliés movie is discovered in the collection and you follow efforts to have it restored. And after the film is over, Zahs will show you a second lost Mêliés film, discovered in June of this year, and recently restored, that few people have seen in over one hundred years. November 13 and 14th, follow the link to buy tickets. Might be fun. Thank you for your kind attention.
Just saw you on NJN. Do you ever come to Philadelphia? Would love to see one of your shows. Great job on teaching kids real life history!
