"Modelled loosely on the fabled cabinets, boxes, rooms and chambers of the Renaissance, this exhibition is an invitation to reawaken the unreserved and almost childlike interest and curiosity of the age when Europeans shook off the shadows of the Dark Ages and awoke to the fascination of the external world. When people of intellect and time to spare went (for better and for worse) in search of adventure, discovery and illumination, to all the corners of the Earth, they came back with stories full of wonder and brought back specimens full of mystery and promise. Their curiosity changed forever the ways in which humans look upon the world. -- Christian Gronau wrote the following about this exhibit and the beginning of what we now call 'museum'."
