While I love living in Culver City I must admit it is lacking in a few things. Mainly with museums as I needed to drive or use public transportation to get to any of these places I’ve shown you already. But Culver does boast one museum and it is called ‘The Museum of Jurassic Technology’. Whenever I asked anybody about this place all they would tell me is that it is the trippiest place you will ever be in. With such high praise(?) I finally took an afternoon to witness what makes this tiny building have such an aura of weirdness around it. By the end of my trip I learned that ‘trippy’ or ‘weird’ doesn’t even begin to describe this place. Words like ‘nightmarish’ and ‘unsettling’ are more apt.
So the place starts off innocently enough. The picture probably isn’t doing it justice. It looks incredibly tiny on the outside.
(Not shown behind: A collection of cures involving stored urine, “salted teeth”, and bloody spittle from a baby. What the flying fuck?)
Okay this one needs explaining. Apparently it involves an old wives tale of having bee’s listen to your ailments and the the response from them will tell you what to do. AKA ‘A crazy person thought of this’.
Even an innocent looking room like this creeps me out. If you look at all the books every single one of them talks about Napoleon. The piano and paintings are also about the man. What on Earth is going on?
And there you have it. Quite clearly the scariest place I’ve ever experienced. Seriously this place is like David Lynch having free reign to do WHATEVER he felt like in an two story apartment. There are so many things I wish I could show you but I didn’t want to spoil all of it. Plus the sounds coming from this place makes everything scarier by 150%. Honestly I think this is either some elaborate ruse or a haven for new age hippies. Cause things like astrology is all over this place and the old-age ‘cures’ presented tell me as such. I don’t think I will ever step foot here again unless I want to commit myself into the mouth of madness. But if you are willing I would say give it a shot. It is one hell of a ‘seeing is believing’ experience.
