Morbid Anatomy Museum

The Morbid Anatomy Museum opened to the public today in Brooklyn, so of course Alexa and I had to go! What we found was right up our alley. Inside a black-painted building on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 7th Street in Park Slope, the Morbid Anatomy Museum houses all sorts of funerary, spiritual, and anatomical artifacts, from death masks to spirit photography to Victorian post-mortem photography to strange medical specimens, and on and on. We were in heaven!

No photography is allowed in the museum, unfortunately, but you can see some great shots of their displays in this article from Gothamist (which is also where I found the photo reprinted above, taken by Sai Mokhtari).

In addition, the museum has its own cafe and bookstore. They seemed excited to meet a local author, especially one who writes horror, and are looking into carrying my books!

Special shows and exhibits are coming soon, including a lecture and slideshow on August 7th at 8 PM called “Demonically Possessed Cats.” I want to go to that so badly, but it’s the same night they’re showing Spaceballs on the deck of the USS IntrepidI LITERALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS!

Anyway, you have to check out the Morbid Anatomy Museum when you get a chance. It’s amazing. I’ll be going back a lot!
