Save the Museum of Mystery!
Technically it isn’t the museum–Wolf’s Museum of Mystery, that is–that is in need of saving. Hopefully the Museum will weather this and continue on. Rather it is the current location of the Museum that needs saving. Saving from “modernization.” Saving from “renovation.” The Victorian-era house where Wolf’s is located, and has been for the past five years, is on the proverbial chopping block. The owners want to “refurbish” it, which means ruining it, robbing it of all its personality and history. The proprietors of the Museum of Mystery, Wolf and Ali Mertz, rent the property; they do not own it. Thus it is that they are now under pressure from the owners (the bastards!) of the site to pack up and move. (Wolf and Ali would never call them bastards, as they are far too nice to speak ill of them. But I am free to do so, and so I shall. Bastards!)
The bastards in question are asking a steep price for the property. The Mertz’s hope to purchase it, to save the old house in its current condition and avoid having to create everything from the museum and cart it off to another location, provided they can even find one. This is where YOU come in. You can help them. How? Buy something! Everything at Wolf’s Museum of Mystery is on sale! And we’re talking one-of-a-kind, truly bizarre stuff! Movie memorabilia, authentic occult antiques, anthropological and sociological wonders galore. Any of it could be yours. And not only would you be getting to own something beyond unique and wicked sweet, you’d be helping to preserve the crown jewel of weird tourism that is the Museum of Mystery. What are you waiting for? Go shopping!
