Bat’s Day 2018

batsdaycastlepic2018Celebrating 20 Years of Spooky at the Park!

When we heard this would be the last Bat’s Day Weekend, we knew we had to go and show our support!
(Good news – the annual meet up will continue on, just not the entire weekend of events – whew!)

This Bat’s Day was full of friends, fun, corsets, parasols, meet ups, new friends and of course, many rides on the Haunted Mansion.

Visit the Museum of Death!

The World Famous Museum of Death was founded in June, 1995, originally located in San Diego’s 1st mortuary in a building once owned by Wyatt Earp. Evolving from the controversial art gallery the Rita Dean, founders JD Healy and Cathee Shultz realized the void in the death education in this country and decided to make death their life’s work.

Reopened in Hollywood, California, the Museum of Death houses the world’s largest collection of serial murderer artwork, photos of the Charles Manson crime scenes, the guillotined severed head of the Blue Beard of Paris (Henri Landru), original crime scene and morgue photos from the grisly Black Dahlia murder, a body bag and coffin collection, replicas of full size execution devices, mortician and autopsy instruments, pet death taxidermy, and so much more!

Also on display are videos of autopsies and serial killers, the Heaven’s Gate Cult recruiting video, and the infamous Traces (not Faces) of Death video, all real (not re-enacted) death footage.

The Museum of Death is a self guided tour, lasting approximately 45 minutes to an hour, but those who can stomach it stay as long as they like. The movies run for hours.

We’re located at 6031 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. Admission is $15 per person.

There is no age limit for the Museum of Death, because WE ALL DIE, but we STRONGLY recommend MATURE AUDIENCES! There have been a number of falling down ovations (people passing out) at the museum (mostly men)… so we stress that you should be prepared for a good dose of reality!
