Before the easy entertainment of television or videogames, people found enjoyment using a stereoscope – a device that allows the user to view a pair of separate images as a three-dimensional image! This exhibit features several stereoscopes and numerous stereocards from the collection of Pennypacker Mills to explain the history behind this Victorian amusement. We invite visitors to experience the ‘magical illusion’ in person! All visitors will be able to view the stereographs in 3-D by using a lorgnette which will be provided in the galleries.
