Cabinets of curiosities, also known as ‘wonder rooms’, were small collections of extraordinary objects which attempted to categorise and tell stories about the wonders of the world.
The Cabinet of Curiosity collects together various fragments, articles and trivia to create a microcosm of Victorian culture.
This blog will particularly focus on natural history, gender, fair tales, visual culture and the history of emotions.
