What is Obscura Day?

It’s more than 150 events in 39 states and 25 countries, all on a single day, and all designed to celebrate the world’s most curious and awe-inspiring places.

Enter the magical, and sometimes bizarre world of living dolls – clockwork automata from the Murtogh D. Guinness Collection at the Morris Museum.

In celebration of Obscura Day 2015, the Guinness Collection Curator and Conservator invite you to the Morris Museum for an interesting and unique demonstration program of clown automata! Come and delight in the fantastical doings of the incredible clowns, jesters and harlequins from the Guinness Collection. Then join us for a private tour behind the locked doors of the Guinness Viewable storage area, where over 500 more mechanical musical instruments and automata live!

Ticket price includes general admission to the museum and the opportunity to join the public daily demonstration of the Guinness Collection at 2pm.
