The Museum of Death

World's largest collection of serial killer artwork and other macabre exhibits


The Museum of Death, a showcase of just that, was originally founded in San Diego in 1995. In 2000, proprietor James Healy moved the museum to its current location in Los Angeles, and expanded to what is now the largest collection of serial murderer artwork, photos of the Manson crime scenes, original photos from the Dahlia Murders, and other such relics of the violent, fatal and macabre.

Other exhibits in the museum include the guillotined, severed head of Henri Landru, a body bag and coffin collection, full size replicas of execution devices, mortician and autopsy instruments (and pictures and video of such in use), taxidermy showcases, the Heaven's Gate Cult recruiting video and more.

If you've managed to read this far, then the Museum of Death just might be a must-see destination for your inner-ghoul. The museum is a self-guided tour that lasts about an hour, but, of course, you're welcome to stay as long as you like (if you're up to it).

"I think it shocks people, but its a good shock," said Healy. "Seeing all these artifacts of death in one place reminds people how precious life is."
