  • I took a solo trip here and was worth it! The only thing that was disappointing was the collection wasn't bigger, it's like 2.5 bedrooms worth of stuff that is well preserved including my two favorite...  more »

  • 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.
  • Really more of a coffee/gift shop then a 'museum' proper, but fun and charming in a creepy way, nonetheless. There are quirky somewhat informal events planned here from time to time, and the museum has assorted oddities, but you can stroll through rather quickly. Generally, you can get a coffee or small bite and lounge in the cafe/gift shop perusing books, taxidermy and the same sort of oddities presented in the museum. The staff are generally quite helpful, and are generally interested in the quirky/alternative culture represented. Fun visit, but may not be worth going out of the way for.
  • 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.
  • Wouldn't consider it a museum, and it has little relation to anatomy save the bones for sale in the gift shop. The "exhibit" itself is more of a taxidermy collection, and the "library" include such titles as the NY science museum pamphlet. I'd definitely stick to the gift shop and save yourself twelve dollars

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
