Our museum joined twitter solely to participate! This contribution is an early 19 c. wax child mannequin from Germany. It was stored face-down in a heated attic for many years, flattening its features into a snout. Please enjoy.

An old piece I had done a year back. Funny how theres so much I see wrong with my old work and yet I feel like I was a better artist back then than I am now..⚫⚪🖤

Sweden joining with a stuffed lion from the Royal Gripsholm Castle. In 1731, the Bey of Algiers presented the king of Sweden with a living lion. When it died, it was stuffed and mounted, however, the stuffer had never actually seen a lion before!

Our ! This is an artistic interpretation of Skalula, or Owl Woman. She is a child-eating monster that teaches children to stay inside at night! She is like the “boogeyman” of syilx lore. Made by artist Coralee Miller.

Here’s a late entry from us. We have many creepy dolls that could have been contenders, but the boxes of creepy wax heads win out. They just keep popping up during our storage improvement work. Happily grinning away. Real teeth. Real hair.

Strong contender for our is a microbat in a bottle, from Central Australia. We’re not quite sure how it got in there either. (Do we get bonus points for the TP mount?)

We’re not a museum but these are probably the creepiest things I have to hand from . A rather sinister postcard & my beloved mother as child channelling Chucky from Child’s Play!
