Step back in time to enjoy this brand new attraction at the Heights. Introducing the bizarre world of the Victorian curiosity fairground sideshow. Be prepared to be astounded by Professor Okko as he shows wonderful artifacts from around the known (and unknown) World. See for the first time in England, the Marcus Island mermaid, proof of the existence of this fabled sea creature. Be in awe of the hand of Queen Cleopatra, preserved for over 2000 years. 

Feast yourself in incredulity, astounding and disbelief. Some would say these things cannot exist, but on selected dates here at the Heights, before your very eyes, the Palace of Curiosities will prove that seeing truly is believing (or not...)
