One of a Kind Wonders

Among the many items that reside within the hallowed halls of the Berkshire Museum, there exist many unusual artifacts. Staff of the Berkshire Museum have identified a number of objects that are difficult to categorize and are unique within our collection. We have isolated those materials and are prepared to unveil them to the public in our One-of-a-Kind Wonders exhibition. 

Among the many items that reside within the hallowed halls of the Berkshire Museum, there exist many unusual artifacts. Staff of the Berkshire Museum have identified a number of objects that are difficult to categorize and are unique within our collection. We have isolated those materials and are prepared to unveil them to the public in our One-of-a-Kind Wonders exhibition.

Some of the objects have bizarre backstories such as the stone that was used to bury the devil in Tyringham, an astounding collection of German dolls from the 19th century, a 500 million-year-old Trilobite fossil, lava from Mt. Vesuvius, a section of the pillow case on which Abraham Lincoln drew his last breath, albino animals, and a newly discovered curious weapon brought to the Berkshires from Vatican City.

Though few members of the public have viewed these items, the images of the objects remain ensconced in their memories. We are now prepared to unleash on the unsuspecting public this collection of One-of-a-Kind Wonders. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
