This museum consists of one man's curious collection of items related to death, dying, and murder most foul. Here, you can expect rooms of serial killer art, clothing from those executed on Death Row, newspaper clippings on mysterious deaths, a room full of morticians' equipment, rooms dedicated to various death cults (including Heaven's Gate and the Manson Family), old PSA's...

I had seen an article online about neat places to visit in the LA area, and since it was on the way to our main destination, my best friend and I decided to detour a bit to check it out. We weren't sure what to expect as there are not many photos of the inside due to them not being... More

Spent about an hour here, found it interesting but some stuff freaked me out a bit. The place feels quite eerie when walking around too.

definitely not for everyone as many others on here have said. Gross, morbid and creepy photos and descriptions. the video of embalming was enthralling yet disgusting thinking of your loved ones going through that process. being a nurse and having seen my share of dead people, I was still taken aback by some of the photos. still in all, you...

a little creepy, but something different to do in while in Los Angeles plus they have a two headed turtle!

Definitely not for everyone. Was very morbid and graphic, but very interesting and informative! And there are Siamese turtles and a dog to make you smile again when leaving!

We knew going in that this was not for the squeamish.... So we were prepared. There's so much information and tons of things to look at. I loved learning about the Heaven's Gate mass suicide. There were lots of videos I would have loved to watch all the way through but it was a busy day today. You can tell... More

This museum is definitely not for everyone, but I knew I had to visit because old Hollywood crime interests me. And my best friend is kind of spooky, so I knew she'd want a souvenir. Paying money to gawk at original artwork by John Wayne Gacy made me pretty uneasy, but I did it, so who am I to judge?... More

The curators here obviously took a lot of thought into organizing these collections into an interesting and informative way. The collection is brimming with photos, ephemera, and objects such as coffins (showing different coffin types), skulls, and a wide variety of odd objects. There is a lot of stuff about serial killers and murders in general (Charles Manson, a local... More

A very unusual museum I have ever been to. I was very impressed with all the details and how very well planned it was. The owner's have painstakingly created this museum and you can see it from all the items they have gathered. Beware that there is a lot of gory materials and images and is not for the faint... More
