A private or secret place to which only an elected few are admitted

A cabinet of curiosities was an encyclopedic collection in Renaissance Europe of types of objects whose categorial boundaries were yet to be defined.

They were also known by various names such as Cabinet of Wonders, and in German Kunstkammer ("art-room") or Wunderkammer ("wonder-room").

Modern terminology would categorize these objects in terms of natural history, geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art and antiquities. The Kunstkammer was regarded as a microcosm or theater of the world, and a memory theater. The Kunstkammer conveyed symbolically the patron's control of the world through its indoor, microscopic reproduction.
