Baroque Europe

The Baroque was a highly ornamented style concerned with balance and harmony in the work which flourished in Europe from the late 16th to the early 18th century. One of the highlights of our Baroque installation is the Chamber of Arts and Wonders that imitates a Flemish nobleman’s residence in the 1600s. This room, with its hundreds of natural history wonders displayed with marvels of human ingenuity from all corners of the world, offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the excitement of the Age of Exploration in Europe. As an authentic re-creation of a chamber of wonders, this installation is unique in the Americas.
