The museum's beloved Thorne Miniature Rooms are the inspiration behind the newest experience in the Ryan Learning Center's Interactive Gallery, with three of the tiny rooms scaled up to life-size, ready for you to remix and decorate with drawings; a drafting table where you can create your own miniature space; and animation that brings the rooms to life.
