    Lots of serial killer artwork and letters. Entire room of just Charles Manson and Black Dahlia. Actual bunk bed from the Heaven's Gate mass suicide. A must-go for the morbidly inclined. Free parking!

    I had a great time here. Very educational and creepy. Just the way I like it. Lots of great exhibits. Homemade house atmosphere.

    If you think watching The Walking Dead has desensitized you from wincing at macabre, think again: Watch a how-to video on embalming, or hang out at a mass suicide site replica and Cannibalism Niche.

    No pictures allowed inside but very educational for those interested in the history of death, taxidermy, & murder. Photographs are graphic in some rooms but good signage for the squeamish.

    Maybe the most metal museum in the U.S. their website boasts that they have the largest collection of Serial Murderer Artwork, Photos of the Charles Manson Crime Scenes and more!

    Go here & check out the amazing, not for the squeamish, collection of all things mortuary science, serial killers, & tyrannical rulers. Fascinating! Read letters from serial killers? Weird fun!

    This place is awesome if you like gore and death. If you get queasy from stuff like this... DO NOT COME HERE. It is upchuck material central.

    Parking is limited in the rear. Be prepared to park in the street.

    A bit too gory for my liking, almost glorifying blood and guts and gore.

    Fascinating, but not for the squeamish. No subject too taboo, no photographs too brutal.
