The Museum of Interesting Things:

The Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling virtual or live interactive demonstration/exhibition of antiques and inventions that goes to schools, libraries 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!

The Secret Speakeasy is a live and virtual benefit to help the Museum reach more kids and adults as well as a way for more people to see and enjoy the thingies and see 16mm films and hear vinyl records! Each week has a different historic theme.
