The Renwick Gallery has a current exhibition titled Inventing a Better Mousetrap: Patent Models from the Rothschild Collection

This unique exhibition features 32 models of nineteenth-century patented inventions submitted to the patent office from across the US. 

This exhibition is a great reminder of our boot-straps heritage and craft traditions. 

The exhibition closes on November 3, 2013.
