Wow! The other tips don't do it justice! The owner wasn't there, but the displays were open. Remarkable folk art. Weird. The skeletons....

Skellville: Skeleton Scenes

As a collector of "stuff," I always appreciate other people's collections, and this is no exception. We even got a small skull souvenir. Great stop!

Skellville: Skeleton Scenes

We visited Skellville and were pleasantly surprised. The owner was really only expecting a donation, not a fixed amount. He made a concrete skull for my son on the spot, which we bought for $9.99. My boys (17, 13, 11) were amused by traipsing through the skeletons, which are decidedly run down. Owner was friendly and chatty. Be prepared to hang around for a while.

Skellville: Skeleton Scenes

This place was very run down on the outside, with several "exhibits" falling apart behind the building. We didn't have the opportunity to go inside because they did not appear to be open even during their stated business hours. I would caution against going out of your way for this stop. Be sure to call ahead. If you have the $3.00 a person to spend and it's on your way then give it a shot, if not save the money and try something else.

Skellville strikes us as the kind of place that would be great to visit if you're lucky enough to catch it when it's open. As with much in life, timing is everything.
