An up-front warning: Some rooms are not suitable for younger children so planning should account for this. Two rooms which young children should not view are the animals’ room and the medieval collection. Some items in these rooms are classified as being morbidly grotesque. Other than that, other rooms will hold assorted items ranging from the comically whacked-out to plain odd.

Astounding collections of oddities that meet you while walking through the different rooms include candy art, miniature terracotta soldiers, lint art, and wax figures of strange animals and human deformities.
