Opened in 2022, The Bone Museum is a rare repository of real human skeletons, which is dedicated to explaining their use throughout medical history. Founder Jon Pichaya Ferry started collecting human remains mostly from medical professionals while still living in a dorm room at Parsons School of Design. Under the label JonsBones, previously displayed his macabre assortment in his Williamsburg apartment, before relocating to a permanent 175-square-foot space in Bushwick.
While the museum might seem a tad morbid, Ferry insists that it’s largely for educational purposes and that all of the bones are certified by a forensic anthropologist to make sure their provenance is legal. To date, his collection includes nearly 100 human skulls, 120 spinal columns, and eight full skeletons.
