J.F. Driscoll Family Stair of Wonders

All Levels

More than 1,000 historical or scientific artifacts from the Museum's extensive collections are featured along the J.F. Driscoll Family Stair of Wonders. Not part of the permanent galleries, these "cabinets of curiosities" feature a 20 kilogram hippopotamus jaw, horns and antlers of such mammals as the impala and ibex, and stuffed Birds of Paradise. Other levels reveal colourful mid-19th to the mid-20th century glass fingerbowls, a breathtaking display of jewel-toned seashells and stunning selections from the Museum's world-class paperweight collection.
