Augusta, Georgia - Dime Museum Rises From Grave
Pexcho's American Dime Museum: We were crestfallen when Dick Horne's American Dime Museum closed in Baltimore in 2007. It was a unique showcase of the rare and ghastly. We thought we'd never again see priceless relics such as a Petrified Minotaur, or Abraham Lincoln's Last Bowel Movement. [07/22/2010] Complete Story...
Lincoln's Last Bowel Movement

Loopy Lincoln Landmark: Framed and hanging on a wall in a museum.

It has taken us a long time, but we are now alive and well and open in Augusta, and are setting in like a tick. We will have a grandiose opening party on June 8.

Pexcho's collection of Dime Museum weirdness has already seared eyeballs in Baltimore and Baton Rouge. Augusta seems like a good fit, but the city really does need to re-erect its Cursed Pillar....

We have closed Pexcho's American Dime Museum and are moving to Monterey, CA. Today was the last day, March 6th 2011. We will contact you when we get up and running in California...hopefully for the end of summer. It all depends on the shipping company. See you soon.
