    The ever-changing exhibition at the Coney Island Museum has previously included such sights as a hand-carved Steeplechase Man figure, The Cosmorama of the Great Dreamland Fire (a huge cyclorama, or panoramic painting, commemorating that park's burning in 1911) and The Great Coney Island Spectacularium (an exhibition revolving around 1800s Coney Island attractions). Unfortunately, the museum won't be open for the 2013 season—but the free-admission Coney Island History Project is picking up the slack with The Curious Playland Arcade Art of Larry Millard, a collection of murals from the old Playland Arcade, through July 7.
