A raree show, also spelled as "rarity show", is a type of traveling show or performance that was popular in Europe and America during the 18th and 19th centuries. It typically consisted of a small box or cabinet with peepholes on the sides, through which viewers could see a variety of miniature scenes, figures, or curiosities, often accompanied by music and narration.
The objects and scenes inside a raree show could range from exotic animals and natural wonders to historical events, mythological stories, and popular entertainments. They were often used to educate and entertain audiences, and were particularly popular among children and people of lower social classes.
