When Nutt was 17 years old he was brought to New York City to be exhibited at Barnum's American Museum that stood at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street. The museum, owned by P.T. Barnum and his partner John Scudder, was a combination zoo, museum, lecture hall, wax museum, theater and freak show that, at its peak, was open fifteen hours a day and had as many as 15,000 visitors daily.
