Hello worlds!

Welcome to the new incarnation of our website!

The Museum of All Things Awesome and that Go Boom (MATAGB) has spent more than two centuries in the Old Ptolemy, the oldest surviving dancing building in the universe. Our site has been down since the building tripped and fell last month, crushing our server, but we’re back with a new design and the building has righted itself again.

Damage to the Old Ptolemy’s West Wing.

Watch this space for exciting new workshops and sneak peaks into our exhibits and permanent collection!
