From the one-time Guinness World Record champion biggest rubber band ball on the planet to the horrifying Devil Man, who once graced the cover of The Weekly World News, expect the unexpected once you step into our museum. Come see historic relics such as a lock of hair from Harford County’s own infamous presidential assassin, John Wilkes Booth, and a letter handwritten by Baltimore’s master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe – who, just days before his death, was found on a train passing through Havre de Grace.
Locally-tailored exhibits will allow visitors to learn more about Havre de Grace’s own poisonous resident – Hattie Stone – who purportedly killed five members of her family using Strychnine, the evidence for Chessie - our Chesapeake Bay sea monster, and the origins of the mysterious Ouija Board, which was patented by a Bel Air native and produced in Baltimore.
Come see the rare and endangered Amorphophallus Titanum, also known as the Corpse Flower. This flower only blooms every 7-10 years and smells like that of a rotting corpse. There are only approximately 100 of these cultivated plants in the entire world!
Beyond the world-class paranormal and oddities collection, our museum will also host entertaining and informative shows and events. On any given week you might find on museum hosting psychic readings, tarot card and fortune telling, paranormal classes and discussions, guest speakers and lecturers on a variety of obscure and fascinating topics, book readings with popular regional authors, sideshow performances with sword-swallowers and fire-eaters, special traveling exhibits, rotating outsider art gallery openings, and more.
