Perfectly weird

The whole museum is pretty surreal. Also beautifully arranged so each room has a different mood. Unusual experience.

I don't really want to review because you should see it with no expectations and an open mind. Is it a museum? An artwork? A prank? Check it out and see for yourself.

This strange place is not exactly what I would call a museum. Catholic chapel decorated tea room, miniature mobile homes, dogs that died in Russian space programs and everything between hell and heaven. It's hard to figure out the place and you'll most likely end up laughing plenty. It's really hard to explain, so just go if your curiosity wins... More

This is a museum made for nerds, misfits, introverts, pot smokers, psychedelic drug users, artists, scientists, book lovers, writers, emos, occultists, sexual deviants, haters, people who enjoy early David Bowie and Talking Heads, people who've had childhood trauma that has been treated with drugs or/and therapy, and folks with a dark sense of humor.

One of, if not the, best museums I've been to. The experience is amazing, unique and thought-provoking. The atmosphere is truly something magical. The less you know the better, go and experience it for yourself. Entry is cheap and 100% worth it. I spent a few hours in there.

My daughter, who lives in Culver City, showed me this amusing, intelligent, toungue-in-cheek museum. I looked around at some of the visitors and could see that they didn't get it! I've never seen a museum like this. If you have a random sense of humor, don't miss it!

A must visit for museum lovers! Charming Russian tea room on the top floor. Fascinating exhibits and collections. Interesting film for viewing. Some exhibits out of order.

I LOVE this place and can't praise it enough. It's probably the weirdest place I've ever been. It's sitting on Venice blvd and by the front door, you'd never know what's inside. It's fun to walk around for a couple hours and have tea upstairs. It's sooooo interesting and will keep you captivated for a long time. TIP: Don't look... More

I get it - this museum is some kind of parody. But a lot of its content is so obscure and bizarre that you are left scratching your head wondering where the joke is. Some parts of the museum are genuinely funny, but generally in a very subtle and somehow unsatisfying way. That said, I still enjoyed the visit on... More

Truth or fiction, reality or myth? You decide.The world divides into two groups: the many wonderful people who visit this museum and are totally baffled and turned off by its blurred line between confabulation and reality, or the devoted fans who are totally charmed by its brilliant obfuscation, challenging originality, and dry humor. Get in the mood by watching the... More
