Cabinet of Curiosities exhibit

Within the depths of the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society collection are never-before-seen artifacts that will ignite your curiosity and send shivers down your spine! The Sigal Museum will showcase its eerie, weird, and most curious objects from the collection vault. Visitors will learn the stories behind strange objects like the Apache Skull Cracker, Benjamin Yowell’s own Cabinet of Curiosities, the Korean Death Pot, Little Master Bobby, and many more.
What is a Cabinet of Curiosities? For hundreds of years, people have been collecting items relating to the natural world, archaeological wonders, religious relics, art — almost anything you can think of! People shared their collections with each other to learn about these artifacts and to entertain each other. Visitors can step back in time and be the first to lay eyes on never-before-seen objects. Dare to explore the museum’s best kept secrets? Attendance free with paid admission.
