Visitor Tips and News About Bunny Museum
Candice and her husband Steve are obsessed with two things in life -- bunnies and the love they share for one another. Each day to commemorate their love they exchange gifts in the form of a bunny. There home is a living museum that signifies love and obsession.
It's beautifully honest, strange and a true must-see for all. I have been going and taking photography students here for the last 7 years. No matter how many times I enter their home I find myself just as enchanted and mystified as I was upon my very first visit.[Tommi Cahill, 01/29/2013]
The Bunny Museum is truly unique and extremely bizarre. Located in a residential home in a quiet Pasadena neighborhood, it takes collecting to an almost hoarder-like extreme. At the time of my visit, the museum was filled to the brim with 29,000 bunnies -- stuffed, statues and every manner of bunny replica that you could possibly imagine.
The collection was started years ago by the married couple who live here. To show their affection to each other they gift one another a rabbit a day. There are also live bunnies and a display case of freeze dried bunnies who were past members of the household, now residing in Bunny Heaven. Definitely surreal, definitely weird...[Nikki Kreuzer, 12/27/2012]
