' Visitors will learn how to make a zeo trope, a drum with slits in it that can be rotated to produce an animated image.

The old image lingers in your brain long enough to blend right in with the next image, Sobey said.

The giant marionette was designed by the museum to give visitors a chance to see how a marionette operates without the frustration of tangling strings.
