Neptune’s Grotto

Neptune’s Grotto is an evocative assembly of curiosities from the sea that brings together items collected by sailors, scientists, shopkeepers, and tourists. Intentionally eclectic, it aims to capture a bit of the spirit of a seventeenth- or eighteenth-century cabinet of curiosities, the forerunner of the modern museum, where the specimens have no labels and their arrangement invites you to invent stories of your own.
