  • A cool little museum of oddities, not as educating/interesting as for example Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, but can be good for a change in NYC

  • The morbid anatomy museum is in a small space with a rich collection of unique and wonderful items you will rarely encounter else where. The staff were passionate and knowledgeable about the exhibit and were keen to have a chat. The coffee shop severed one of the best coffees I've experienced in NYC and the gift shop was a genuine chance to buy some incredible collectors items rather than cheap nonsense with a logo on it. It was well worth a visit and I would gladly return.
  • Was a little bit disappointed by how physically small the museum is, but I went to the Morbid Anatomy flea market and decided that I had to go and browse the museum and see the taxidermy exhibit; Being someone who has a big interest in science, but little to no experience with taxidermy or the process of preserving animals or specimens, the special exhibit, besides being small was both fascinating and disturbing, you would be hard-pressed to find anything similar in NYC or the nearby area. I also loved the permanent exhibit and being a bibliophile, the selection of books is so unique and covers really amazing subject matter. Very interesting place!
  • What a nasty little place this is! Their website is rarely updated, no answering machine for the phone. Drove 70 miles round trip to see a show that ended a day before. I would have known that had they had an answering machine on the phone, or answered the phone, or updated their website. Worse, the purple haired beyotch at the front desk did not even have 'I'm sorry" within her vocabulary when we explained our plight. And another poor woman and her BF had traveled from Toronto for this and suffered the same misfortune. This place has few oddities; has what poorly passes for a coffee shop and staff need to learn how to treat visitors with courtesy, respect and act like they give a damn! I'd never stage any event there. Zero support from staff. Save your time and stay away.
  • I wish I could give a zero star rating. Joanna Ebenstein, one of the founders, is a freak. What's the pleasure of killing and stuffing kittens just to put them on a display, she calls it "the main attraction". I am smelling animal abuse.
  • Left this museum feeling like I had been scammed out of $8. The gift shop is more interesting than the actual museum which is a collection of maybe 35 stuffed animals "displayed" haphazardly in a room the size of my New York apartment. There are no descriptors on the displays and they had "run-out" of the crappy printed visitors guide that they apparently usually supply. It took us 10 minutes to look at their collection of junk and 20 minutes to browse the gift shop. We were first lured into this museum by way of the similarly unimpressive Morbid Anatomy Flea Market which was promised in Time Out as a collection of cool and unusual stalls (there were MAYBE 15 total?) and we were charged $1 to be allowed to enter. I feel like this place survives off conning people out of their money - it's not enough that you want to demand a refund, but it's also definitely FAR too much for as shoddy and shameful a collection of tat as they have on display. $2 would be a more appropriate entrance fee.
