School and Youth Group Programs

The Museum of Interesting Things is a traveling interactive demonstration/exhibition of antiques and inventions inspiring innovation and creativity – learning from the past to create a more inventive future. Our demonstrations are hands on. We let people touch some items and truly experience what life was like many years ago. We bring items that show what inventions led to ipods and other items in our everyday lives. There are 8 departments that coincide with the core curriculum and STEAM (STEM with the Arts added to it) in our public schools as well as being fun and interesting for kids and adults! We can customize the exhibition to where you are currently in your curriculum also!

The departments are:

We can also work with any age group & budget from grades 1 through 12, college students to seniors. Schools, hospitals, universities, galleries, parties, libraries, Summer camps, Scout groups, anywhere with a room and people, we’ll bring things! We come to you. Like a circus…just no elephants.

The modern world is a fast-paced, technology driven society that sets its sights towards the FUTURE.

Many children have MP3 players, video game systems, and cell phones, but have no idea of the ORIGINS of what they consider ordinary, everyday devices.

Learning the HISTORY of an idea or invention from a book or a web page is only one step in exploring the past.

TMIT is a traveling, staffed museum that provides adults and children the opportunity to SEE and TOUCH real ANTIQUE items in operation.

Birthday Parties

Or actually play an Edison Cylinder Phonograph player, the one with the big horn. We can customize the show to your likes or surprise you.  Remember, we have a quack medical department AND a toy section. We’ll even go into the crowd and engage them with some of our Interesting Things! Yes, they can touch some items as well as enjoy our demos. We can also work with any age group & budget from grades 1 through 12, college students to senior citizens.
