From Dodo bones and a mounted koala to a two-headed kitten and living coral. From an etch by an old master to doodled toilet rolls and occult paintings. From a pop art print to a Mac Donald’s Happy Meal toy. The collections of this museum of curiosities is indescribable. And they don’t try to either. They say they’re not aiming to classify the collection or make it comprehensible. The museum calls itself a Wunderkabinett and aims to function as “a mirror to a world so suffused with miracles and beauty that any attempt at categorization is bound to fail”. They also have a petting zoo, where you can kuddle with a chameleon or play with a tarantula and a python. Revive with cocktails and tapas in the museum bar & cafe.
