Museum of Lost Wonder

About Us

The Museum of Lost Wonder and Creator/Curator Jeff Hoke

Founded in 1997, the Museum of Lost Wonder exists to illuminate some of life’s biggest mysteries.

Follow in the footsteps of early scientists and philosophers, who combined imagination and observation in their search for knowledge. Using modern everyday examples, the exhibits show that this search is still relevant today and that by learning about the attempts of others, we discover important things about ourselves.

Embark on a journey of discovery at the Museum of Lost Wonder, where learning is an adventure and science is about the alchemy of inspiration. 

Our Mission

In a familiar and friendly atmosphere the Museum of Lost Wonder will attempt to address those concerns that are of importance to the curious of all ages. Through instructive exhibits, enlightened discussion and captivating activities we will uncover a forgotten way of looking at the world that once induced wonder to many, and now only produces confusion for the few.

Join us in our search for all things lost.

Discover… forgotten things in the world around us.
Recover… forgotten things in the world within you.
Uncover… forgotten things not in this world at all.
