 We are excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity.  Anthropologist and Author, Amanda Woomer brings with her The Museum of Memento Mori.

Come face to face with nearly one-hundred artifacts from the Victorian Mourning Era, including post-mortem photos, jewelry made from human hair, spirit trumpets, "tear catchers,' coffin plates, and more.  The mission of the museum is to create an environment that inspires healthy conversations about death and reminds you of memento mori...remember you must die.  Admission is a $5 donation to the museum.
