Allow enough time to read all the little cards, they are fabulous mix of fact and snippets from the owner's life. Whilst it's an enormous collection it just all works together and is well worth the entry price.

Such an amazing collection of curiosities, will definitely return to spend more time. Younger kids (< 5) might struggle but otherwise something for everyone.

Amazing collection of intriguing items, very profesionally presented. Give yourself at least an hour to take it in. We took about 2 hours, 15 minutes of that just in the hallway. The articles beside an item are often astonishing in themselves. Make sure to read the long ones to the end.
The curator (Bruce Mahalski) also has some of his very impressive bone art on display.
