It is rather common nowadays that museums, especially those of the "science center" type, have showcases where visitors can perform experiments. In the Futures' Museum in Borlänge we have made an exhibit where interested persons can construct parabolas. In this note we describe this showcase. Analogous exhibits can be made for constructing ellipses and hyperbolas.
