Unique and fascinating individuals are on display in the Cabinet today. One man's example sets the stage for more than a century of entertainment, while another man comes face to face with his own shadow.
The Cabinet holds tales of wonder and impossibility today. Meet a man with a very peculiar vision of the future, and then take a house call from a renowned physician. Neither tale will end the way you expect.
Today's tour of the Cabinet takes us into the world of dreams. In our first tale, a pair of men find everything they were looking for. In the second, two men encounter something altogether impossible and unexpected.
On exhibit today are two objects of mystery. First, a game of chance that was loaded with meaning, hinting at something far more nefarious than pure recreation. Then, the most unusual computer you will ever meet.
