Join us in Johnston Hall to explore Assistant Museum Curator Bronwyn Minton’s latest interactive exhibit—Wonder Cabinet.  This installation takes a new look at a traditional Cabinet of Curiosities, or Cabinet of Wonder, by featuring natural history objects once considered to be oddities. Get hands-on by creating your own fun "DIY" wonder objects, like plaster-insects and butterfly shadow boxes. 

Enjoy music by DJ VerT-OnE, local culinary artisan Oscar Ortega, treats from Jackson Hole Buffalo Meat Company and Rising Sage Café, and specialty Peacock Tonic and Aperol Spritzer drinks. A cash bar will also serve wine and beer.
