Trundle Manor - House of Oddities

Trundle Manor, conveniently located right off the Parkway in Swissvale, is the home of the Secret Society of Odd Acquisition, as well as a Wunderkammer/House of Oddities. A fun, quirky "tourist trap" destination, you will find one of the most bizarre collections in the country featuring dead things in jars, vintage taxidermy, antique medical devices, rusty cleavers and other weaponry, coffins, Steam Punk sculptures, various types of artwork, and even a Singing Tumor and Dancing Midget!

Also an artists' residence, tours are by appointment only. Tours are free, but the owner/collector, Mr. ARM, asks for a donation (which includes dead and/or weird things to add to the collection!)
