Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling museum that goes to schools, events, conventions, other museum and gallery spaces, private parties, camps and more. Denny's goal is to present to the public of all ages things both common AND rare, while explaining the evolution of where it all came from. For example, Denny might start with showing a music streaming service on a device, then travel backwards to iPods, CD Walkmans, cassette Walkmans, portable cassette players, 8-track players, reel-to-reel players, record players, wax cylinder players, and more. Popular topics Denny presents include wind-up toys, quack medical devices, the history of the women's suffrage movement and more. Best of all, whenever Denny does an exhibition, you can actually touch the objects he's presenting, and operate them, too!
If you're interested and able to purchase a ticket, you'll be aiding a great cause which helps Denny keep this vital educational endeavor running, especially now that he's back to doing masked, socially-distanced live shows in the museum space in-person, that are simultaneously streamed virtually. Click on this link to order advance tickets to the Zoom stream or the live-in-person event, or you can also purchase tickets at the door (The Loft at Prince Street, 177 Prince St, 3rd Floor, between Thompson & Sullivan streets in Soho NYC) when you arrive. You can also call 212 274 8757 for more details. Hope to see you there!
Until then, please enjoy this mini-documetary about Castle Films and other home movies!
