Death masks.

Archive of the Afterlife

Really. Curator Steven Hummel was very nice, and very cool stuff.

Dirt from spiritual and grisly locations.

Archive of the Afterlife

Archive of the Afterlife is a collection of historical and paranormal artifacts from many different locations. My favorite items throughout the museum were the dirt samples from various locations. The doll collection was very creepy, and the painting of Annie had a certain pull about it.

The day we were in, we got to meet Steve and Mike. It was very fascinating to hear their stories!
