Chamber of Heart & Mystery


The Chamber of Heart and Mystery is a portal to The Word Lab at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History. Open during museum hours, the Chamber is an imaginarium designed to inspire creative thinking and story writing. Filled with odd and intriguing ephemera in its Cabinets of Curiosities, the Chamber is the study of Dr. Cora X. Crux, renowned expert on the heart and its mysteries. A cryptozoologist, Dr. Crux has graciously allowed us into her study while she is away and has given visitors access to the devices she uses to inspire and guide her research including the:
  • Magic Lantern Theater
