One of the newest displays is a display of hand-carved wooden Marionette figures. These figures are part of the museum’s own marionette collection. The museum also hosts traveling exhibits. This past summer it hosted the My Sky exhibit, which was intended to educate the entire family about the wonders of the heavens. The exhibit put the sun, moon, and stars on display as visitors gazed through a telescope. They were also shown videos and models of space. The exhibit was intensive, giving kids and parents a thorough look at the sky throughout a 24-hour period.
