Curious Contraptions: Inside the Fairy Tale Factory is coming soon this Fall starting November 8th—back in its third year with more whimsy and magic than ever!

Curious Contraptions explores small, surreal worlds through the charming, often hilarious mechanical sculptures known as automata. These whimsical machines are brought to life by intricate arrangements of handmade cams, cranks, and other simple mechanisms. Each sculpture performs an absurd miniature drama—sometimes a myth or fairy tale—while also reflecting its maker's worldview and sense of humor. Exposed inner workings and low-tech mechanisms invite the viewer to understand how each automata comes to life.

Artists include Keith Newstead, Wanda Sowry, Carlos Zapata, Paul Spooner, Fi Henshall, Kazu Harada, and others.

Join us all season long for Curious Contraption fun, with meet-the-artist workshops, Exploratorium Explorables DIY crafts, Contraption-inspired films from Cinema Arts, and more!
