I have been to literally hundreds of museums in my life, but this one was one of the most unique ones. Although I had seen several hair wreaths and jewelry pieces made from human hair before, it was usually just one or two items on display at a historical museum. This place is amazing in both the quantity, quality, and variety of items made with human hair on display. Well worth the the time and cost of admission.

The place looked closed when we drove up but we risked a tug on the door... Absolutely worth a stop! I can't remember her name but the girl who gave us the tour was AWESOME and her knowledge of "everything hair" was incredible. I ended up buying the How-To book on hair jewelry and wish I had the time to take the class.

Keep it up, ladies!
