I know virtually nothing about alchemy, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the Museum of Lost Wonder. Its main purpose is to teach dummies like me a little something about the magical art.

Taking a virtual tour of the museum is great fun, as well as educational.

Starting at the ticket booth, you’re led through a series of halls dedicated to the different steps in the alchemical process.

Along the way you can click around the rooms for hidden nuggets of information, all the while enjoying the bubbling sounds of everything from calcination to conjunctio.

I had a fabulous time scooting from one hall to the next, looking for flashing lights or hidden rooms. I’m still an alchemical dummy, but perhaps a little less dumb than I was before the tour.

And if you do decide to visit, make sure to try the other links on the site as well. I especially liked the sacred geometry movie, ‘A Love Story.’
