BROOKLYN - Visitors to the Coney Island Museum had a chance to meet the creators of its two unique, new exhibits. 

The reception included the artists behind a re-creation of Luna Park from a century ago, which is the largest piece of artwork made entirely from a 3-D desktop printer. 

Another exhibit, called the Dark Side of Dreamland, pays homage to the urban community in Coney Island. 

The Surf Avenue museum reopened on Memorial Day this year after suffering severe damage during Superstorm Sandy. Admission is $5.
