Museum of Death
In light of the last post with the crime museum, I snooped around and found The Museum of Death in Hollywood. This place looks dope, read their description right here:
The World Famous Museum of Deathwas founded in San Diego June 1, 1995. Originally located in San Diego’s 1st mortuary’s in a building once owned by Wyatt Earp. Evolving from the controversial art gallery the Rita Dean, founders James Healy and Cathee Shultz realized the void in the Death education in this country and decided to make Death their Life’s work.
Recently reopened at it’s NEW location the Museum of Death houses the worlds largest collection of Serial Murderer Artwork, Photos of the Charles Manson Crime Scenes, the Guillotined Severed Head of the Blue Beard of Paris, Henri Landru, Original Crime Scene and Morgue Photos from the Grisly BLACK DAHLIA MURDERS, a Body Bag and Coffin collection, replicas of Full Size Execution Devices, Mortician and Autopsy Instruments, Pet Death Taxidermy, and much much more!
Also on display are videos of autopsies and serial killers, the Heaven’s Gate Cult recruiting video, and the infamous Traces (not faces) of Death video, all real (not re-enacted) Death footage.
The Museum of Death is a self guided tour, lasting approximately 45 minutes to an hour, but those who can stomach it stay as long as they like, the movies run for hours.
There is not an age limit for for the Museum of Death because WE ALL DIE but we STRONGLY recommend MATURE AUDIENCES !! There have been a number of Falling Down Ovations (people passing out) at the Museum (mostly Men) so we stress being prepared for a good dose of reality!
Next door to the Museum of Death is the CHAOS GALLERY. A unique art gallery featuring local and international artists focusing on the provocative. Included art jewelry, paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installation artwork. A MUST SEE for out of town visitors! Guests can also view the LIVE SIAMESE TURTLE for a nominal fee, and by purchasing a ticket to the Museum of Death, guests can view the famous turtle at No Charge!
The museum is also available for filming/rental.
All of that for only $15, what a steal!
