The Paranormal Museum is undergoing some changes and will be open sporadically for the rest of 2014. Please check our website or call 732 455 3188 if you plan on visiting!
Paranormal Books & Curiosities is proud to host The Paranormal Museum (located adjacent to the bookshop). The Paranormal Museum is a small, storefront museum, in the tradition of "Roadside America" attractions. It houses a collection of historical and educational exhibits that explore the unexplained myths, legends and folklore that permeate our culture, dot our history books and continue to defy explanation in our world, despite all the advances of science and modern technology.
The Paranormal Museum was created for the purpose of exploring those mysteries that remain in our modern world of science and reason. It is a showcase of all that exists in the borderland betwixt imagination and reality. The exhibits featured in the Museum bring to life the myths, legends, folklore and superstitions through genuine artifacts and artful interpretations. Visitors to the Museum are invited to explore the real life history and diverse culture woven into the fabric of each unsolved paranormal mystery. In the end, it is up to each of us to decide what is a fantasy and what could be truly possible.
What is "paranormal" exactly? Paranormal is a term that encompasses everything in our world which lacks true definition. A dictionary explains it as "events that can not be readily explained, by known conventional reasons and/or commonly accepted science".
We often get asked how long it takes to go through The Paranormal Museum. This is strictly up to the person going through! There is a lot of information, a lot to read and look at and several video displays, however all of this is in a small storefront museum, so while the square footage is about 1200 sq. ft, the information is much bigger! Some people go through in 10 minutes, some people take an hour!
