Originating Calendar
Spurlock Museum - General
Through the centuries, people have devised imaginative, even diabolical, puzzles to test our wits. Three dimensional puzzles crafted of wood, metal, plastic, and other durable materials are designed to be taken apart, rearranged, or untangled. This exhibit is a selection of the world’s most famous mechanical puzzles that are artistic, creative, and challenging. Enjoy their beauty and try your hand at solving some of them.
 
Our guest community curator for this exhibit is local collector Philip Nyman, who has been collecting and studying
mechanical puzzles since he was 7 years old.
