New Jersey

This section includes zoos, aquariums and natural history museums in New Jersey. Why? Fantastical creatures in steampunk tales are often based on real ones. And some steampunk artists have used animal forms as inspiration for their work. The gear icon indicates locations likely to be of particular interest to steampunks.
