The Oddporium

Field review by the editors.

Arden, Delaware

The Oddporium, owned by Ken and Beth Schuler, opened in 2015. The crossroads store has stood since 1911, built by Ken's ancestors, and he notes that seven of them either died inside it or on the surrounding property. This makes it a popular stop for paranormal investigators -- and ideal for Ken and Beth's collection of human skulls and skeletons, insane asylum relics, weird art, and things in jars.

Part store, part museum, the Oddporium exhibits, among its treasures, its own working Tesla coil, a selection of quack medicine nostrums, some lobotomy tools, and a cyclops pig.
