Dimensions: 3 feet by 3 feet by 30 inches high

Description: Invented in the mid 19th Century by Eadward James Muybridge, Zoetropes were precursors to modern films.  They were essentially spinning drums with slits that allowed the viewer to observe the subtly changing images inside, allowing the images to appear, to the observer, to run together and effectively become “animated”.

Using the sheets of paper and provided, visitors can draw their own series of changing images, then place it in the zoetrope and use their muscles to set it spinning and start their creation moving!
