This is one of the weirdest places I ever visited. Its really a strange museum of Jurassic oddities. It is kind of a mixture of science and art and cant really be explained. There are lots of cases that you have to look at very close from beautiful butterfly wings to a rat between 2 slices of bread. The lighting... More

This place is quite questionable. It was pretty much a building full of nick-nacks that had labels and special lighting. It was hard to navigate - no natural flow. We couldn't even figure out how to get downstairs so we just left after visiting the other floors. This would be a great place for a murder scene.

This place is just awesome. For locals who do not know about it and for visitors. Something surreal and different. Just go check it out and be bedazzled. I first heard about it due an article from Werner Herzog and made it a must see. All my LA mates where amazed by the place.

This is a small hole in the wall that you can easily miss, but you shouldn't. It doesn't appear to be much from the outside but looks are deceiving. Its unusual exhibits are unique and very interesting. Some are amazing (don't miss the pictures in the eye of the needle) while others are just odd. But our group loved it,... More

Went on a rainy Sunday- perfect activity! If you appreciate slightly creepy things you'll like it here. Or if you're a cool nerd, this is the place for you. Well worth the very reasonable $8 entry cost. Favorite part was the tea room & garden !

I don't really want to review because you should see it with no expectations and an open mind. Is it a museum? An artwork? A prank? Check it out and see for yourself.

The whole museum is pretty surreal. Also beautifully arranged so each room has a different mood. Unusual experience.

This strange place is not exactly what I would call a museum. Catholic chapel decorated tea room, miniature mobile homes, dogs that died in Russian space programs and everything between hell and heaven. It's hard to figure out the place and you'll most likely end up laughing plenty. It's really hard to explain, so just go if your curiosity wins... More

This is a museum made for nerds, misfits, introverts, pot smokers, psychedelic drug users, artists, scientists, book lovers, writers, emos, occultists, sexual deviants, haters, people who enjoy early David Bowie and Talking Heads, people who've had childhood trauma that has been treated with drugs or/and therapy, and folks with a dark sense of humor.
