We began with a walking tour of a small area of downtown, learning about some of the strange facets of this old seaport town. Things we had taken for granted or over looked suddenly had meaning as we made our way toward some of the...More

An utterly surreal, absolutely unique, and completely engaging experience. For those that like mystery, magic, and curiosities this is absolutely the thing to do. Experiences (for it really cannot be described in any other terms) like this are what make life interesting. Even after having...More

This was one of the strangest and most bizarre museums I have ever encountered, and that’s exactly why I enjoyed it so much! It started with an outdoor tour through a winter snow man festival – in August! This led us to a secret night...More

Our visit to this extraordinary little museum was memorable to say the least. Be sure to read the “Tours” section of their web site very carefully because all visits are made by appointment only - and the exact whereabouts of the museum is a secret!...More
