Wolf’s Dark Christmas Goodbye
Wolf’s Museum of Mystery, one of my favorite places on the planet (where I’ve gotten to spend far too little time) is saying goodbye to sunny Saint Augustine, Florida after 5½ years. The “official” goodbye took place on December 22nd at their “Dark Christmas” celebration (of course they had a showing of KRAMPUS) and sale, but the Museum will be open through January 6th, offering major discounts on all their weird and wonderful merchandise. (Wolf’s may be the only Museum in the world in which all the exhibits are up for sale.) Check out this video for a look at some of the vintage freaky stuff that could be yours if the price is right. All the pieces for sale are truly unique works of art and/or historic artifacts. (Sorry, but John Wayne Gacy’s personal Bible has already sold.)
Wolf’s was essentially forced out by their landlord, who expected them to foot the bill for the extensive repairs needed to the Victorian-era home in which the Museum currently resides. Where will the Museum next appear, after its doors close in Florida on January 6th? They’ve scouted locations in Salem, Massachusetts and in New York. Whatever location is finally settled upon, look for the one-of-a-kind (literally) attraction to reopen its doors sometime in 2019. We’ll keep you posted.
