Wisdom Begins in Wonder: The Cabinet of Art and Curiosity at the Wadsworth Atheneum

Art and Curiosity Cabinets from the 16th and 17th centuries are reflections of society and culture that bring nature, science, theology and history together through objects. Explore the museum’s new, immersive installation with Linda Roth, Senior Curator of European Decorative Arts. Free with museum admission; meet by the Museum Shop.

PLEASE NOTE: The museum’s Avery Door entrance (along Atheneum Square North, across from Travelers Tower) is currently closed to accommodate construction on Travelers Plaza. Please enter the museum through the doors at 600 Main Street. Click here for directions and more information.
