Imagine the end of a day at the carnival: you’ve had your fill of laughter, lights, and cotton candy. You wander to the quiet outskirts, looking for a place to be alone. As you leave the lights and enter the shadows, you encounter the remnants of a sideshow tent from years gone by. Weathered wood boxes cling to the perimeter of the tent. The ratty old entrance flap hangs, torn in the ghostly breeze. Skepticism takes a back seat to curiosity, and you take a step inside.
Inside, is dimly lit by lanterns and candles. Your eyes slowly begin to adjust, and you cautiously look around. You discover the cast away remains of a clown and his unique collection. It seems that because of his unsavory interests, the clown was ostracized by the very carnival he loved. He was sentenced to a life of solitude, alone with only his hoard of cryptic creations. He burned in his own personal hell, a prisoner of his own making. His was a life of horror that gladly welcomed death… May peace come to this mad clown.
Bear witness to bizarre pieces of agony, magical powers, folklore, and preserved death. Behold a collection of taxidermied pets, the remains of carnival animals (and patrons), and the remnants of a happy place now turned gray. Encounter terrifying beasts, like a Real Mermaid, a Six-Foot Man-Eating Chicken, and genetically engineered monsters. Be mesmerized by the old-school Freak Show… and experience the terror of a mad clown’s cryptic collection.
*CAUTION: The specimens in this year’s museum may not be appropriate for younger patrons or those with weak stomachs. Kids 5 and under free.
