Cabinet of Wonders
“As a child I was fascinated, and indeed at times unnerved by Cabinets of Curiosities – strange pieces of furniture in museums, stately homes and side shows that contained a myriad of wonders that, to a child’s eyes, were intoxicating and beguiling. When we began to envisage the Museum of Today we did not want to create a ‘virtual gallery’ – an online version of real life, but rather something of wonder, something for people to explore. So please open the drawers, click on the objects and enjoy our twenty-first century Covid cabinet.” – Robin Hutchinson MBE
