Wunderkammer :: Swiss Bizarre
A quick entry to my hit-list. musée bizarre, the pride of Baden, Switzerland, is purportedly dedicated to two major themes. The primary theme is an exhibit that presents the pioneering techniques of Professor Jakob Pilzbarth's work in his spa clinic in Baden. Lifelike scenes illustrate his dramatic career path, his rise to success, and his eventual bitter demise from public life.

The second major exhibit is simply referred to as ‘MICE MUSEUM’. This depicts the strange adventures of Otto Mouse in 22 miniature scenes. And they really are STRANGE…
I first became aware of the museum through Suzanne’s flickrsite which has a marvellous collection of images that make one hungry to see it for real.
