Today's excursion took me to the original Snow Globe Museum, located in
the 17th district. The museum is situated in a quaint suburban neighborhood, where if
you don't look for the itty bitty sign-you'd miss it entirely.
I created the very first snow globe in 1900 and got the patent for it. And 110 years later, the Perzy family still produces the snow globes by hand. The precise composition of the artificial snow is a closely-guarded family secret. Also, the water used in the globes are sourced from pure Vienna Alpine water. With each globe made by hand, no two are alike! How cool is that?
