BROOKLYN - A former Brooklyn resident returned to his hometown tonight, where his love of collecting unique antiques began.

Denny Daniel participated in a sci-fi film festival in Williamsburg, where he showed off his historic pieces.

Daniel has been collecting bizarre artifacts for more than five years. He has accumulated thousands of pieces, which he often takes on the road across the U.S.

"We are a traveling museum... Like a circus, but without the elephant," Daniel says.

Old telephones, antique toys, vintage hats, and even a conch shell hearing aid are among the antique pieces that Daniel has collected over the years.

Daniel says his mission is to create a timeline to show how modern-day technology and inventions have evolved.

Daniel's traveling Museum of Interesting Things was featured tonight at the Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival. The festival was held at the indieScreen on Kent Avenue.
