This small, wacky museum is hidden in an attic above a gallery. Curious visitors must text a number for access inside.

The museum has been running since 2019 and consists of dioramas that feature various themes, along with antiques and taxidermy. Most pieces were donated and the museum accepts them from anyone. It’s an odd location to visit just off the beaten path.
