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

I didn't really know what to expect when we went to the Museum of Death. I had read about it online and knew it was definitely somewhere I wanted to check out because I've always found serial killers and historic murders fascinatingly disturbing. When we arrived I liked the environment off right off the bat it wasn't fancy, there was... More

Quite a collection of older and more recent crime photos, info, videos, death artifacts...just frankly too much to list. It's not for everyone, but it is part of life so to speak. Some of the images here are the type you can see on rotten dot com but there are so many interesting collectibles I had no idea existed. The... More

If you're a fan of true crime and don't mind the gore, it's a MUST SEE. Relatively cheap admission, free parking, and amazingly interesting artifacts, photos, and displays. I went to Vegas/LA for a week (bounced between the two) and this was by far my favorite attraction. Being one of the true crime weirdos, I had read about a lot... More

Visited here after reading previous reviews on trip advisor. However I don't see why people say they got queasy and that its not for the faint hearted....... or maybe I'm a bit twisted!!! Loads of memorabilia and interesting letters and drawings from real life serial killers. Short tour but you could spend hours there reading all the articles, letters, etc.... More
