  • We went here on our first real visit to Portland after spending some time in the center of town. It was nice to travel to a different neighborhood and the Peculiarium was weird enough and eclectic eno...  more »
  • Tucked back in a nice neighborhood, if you are looking for an hour to kill or if you like small oddity museums it is worth a visit. Some interesting movie items (I personally like the small model cars...  more »
  • Walked in here to check this place out because it sounded so interesting online... not so much, and I’m a lover of all things weird and scary... Admission price was $5, and you can get through the “ex...  more »

  • I did not know what to expect when I walked in here but it was a lot of fun! They have some interactive pieces and a lot of memorabilia. Just remember this is not a haunted house! Nothing is going to jump out at you even though it may seem like it. Really cool place with a neat gift shop/joke shop at the end.
  • Fun to go with teenagers. Not visuals for kids or adults that don’t like the site of guts or blood. Not scary, no jump scares or anything like that. Contains small amounts of prank items and a lot of items with odd humor.
  • For the size and what is contained within, I was blown away. It's just a weird collection, like a giant cabinet of curiosities. And the people running the place have a great sense of humor. Don't come in here expecting a 2 hour long museum tour. This is a small space packed the brim with odd things. It's hard to know what 'facts' posted are indeed facts, and that's the point. Odd little place, totally worth a visit. And yes, reading what is written inside makes the experience better.
  • Very fun! A couple of interactive exhibits. Small, but full to bursting with odds and ends. Don't forget to look up! They no longer serve ice cream.
  • Absolutely terrific collection of odd things and interesting experiences! Fun gift shop with no entrance fee containing custom art and funny gags. $5 fee to get inside to see the items is nothing! It’s not a huge space but very diverse and fun collection. We’ll be back!
