Great stop! Bite size but great movie set props from classic horror films and more recent ones too. Staff is friendly and museum has the best hearse out front for photo ops!

The Exorcist: Linda Blair autograph, and prop Pazuzu idol.

Tom Devlin's Monster Museum

Tom Devlin's Monster Museum continues to grow. Originally starting with one room, he bought the vacated nail salon next door in the building to add more to his Hollywood and B-Movie monster experience. Along with the monster figures and miniatures, Tom displays interesting artifacts and memorabilia. There's a life mask of Tim Curry cast for the makeup for his portrayal as the original Pennywise in IT. Tom created a replica scene from The Exorcist, and close by there's an autographed photo from Linda Blair of her precedent-setting possession. Tom also shares the prop Pazuzu idol head discovered in Iraq by Father Merrin.

Tom Devlin's Monster Museum

I went to Tom's Monster Museum on opening day. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you pass by the Crypt-keeper, it is pretty awesome. Tom Devin is a makeup artist who has worked in everything from major films to straight-to-video releases. His museum represents monsters from the old Universal Studio films to the Evil Dead. Definitely worth a look.
