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.
