Living Dead Museum

This is an amazing zombie museum that has a ton of information and memorabilia from various zombie films, including, obviously, "Night of the Living Dead." It was wonderful, especially if you love anything dealing with zombies, or even sci-fi for that matter. Within walking distance from the Living Dead Marker.

The museum was difficult to locate on Main Street, but eventually found it. Definitely a treasure of zombie memorabilia in a small town.

Living Dead Museum

The museum is about the history of zombies in movies and pop culture, in the town where the original "Night of the Living Dead" and "The Crazies" were filmed. Walk-through exhibits include memorabilia and screen-used props from George Romero movies. Also has a gift shop.

Living Dead Museum

The former Monroeville Zombies Museum in the Monroeville "Dawn of the Dead" Mall has reopened in its own space in downtown Evans City, which was where most of "Night of the Living Dead" (the original 1968 movie) was filmed. The museum is larger than before and, despite its name change, still focuses on zombies throughout cinema and pop culture in all the years since. Some interactive experiences have been added as well as a screening room and a zombie "Maul of Fame!" The gift shop and static displays remain as well.

This place is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and whenever downtown Pittsburgh has its one-day Zombie Fest each October, because they don't want to miss it.
