Join New York Adventure Club to explore the history of the Magic Lantern with The Museum of Interesting Things, a traveling interactive exhibition of antiques and inventions inspiring innovation and creativity. Learn about Magic Lantern presentations where a storyteller (or a charlatan showing spirits) would come to your town with an oil lamp magic lantern projector, and tell stories that made people laugh or scream, learn or sing. See a rare presentation of the antique Disney Magic Lantern glass slides from nearly 100 years ago on the original electrified Disney Lantern Projector, as well as a preview of an authentic 19th-century oil lamp-powered Magic Lantern to see other variations of the Magic lantern over the ages. Look at original storytelling booklets that accompanied Magic Lantern slides of stories, including Pinocchio, Snow White, and so many more.
