(174)

Open Thursday & Friday 5pm to 11pm & Saturday 12pm to 11pm. The Museum: From rare priceless marvels of the natural and scientific worlds like Dodo Bones or speculum to the intriguing beauty of McDonald's Happy Meal Toys, from old master etchings to prison inmates & mad women's doodles, occultists paintings and pop art prints, the horrors and wonders of nature, two headed kittens and living coral. By placing the rare and the beautiful on the same plane as the commonplace, banal & amusing this museum seeks not to educate but to subvert, to show the world not in a grain of sand, but in a Hackney basement. The Museum has no overreaching aim beyond the theft of it's visitors time and the hope that it will provide amusement by return & hopes to fill the vacuum between what the establishment elite believes is worthy of worship & what exists in the world. The Cocktail Bar: Collectors, researchers & absintheurs — Allison Crawbuck & Rhys Everett opened the Society's Cocktail Bar in 2016, bringing with them a shared passion for the mysterious world of Absinthe & the macabre. Together, they have curated the UK's most extensive list of premium quality, traditional absinthes & curious cocktails to pair. Hidden within the wonderfully strange, beautiful and bizarre world of Viktor Wynd's Museum of Curiosities, our speakeasy styled cocktail bar provides a drinking experience like no other. With a rotating menu of eclectically curated cocktails, each drink is inspired by the marvel and oddities of our venue's decor. The History: The Last Tuesday Society is a ‘Pataphysical organization founded by William James at Harvard in the 1870s and presently run by The Chancellor, Mr.Viktor Wynd with the aid of The Fellows of The Society. It is devoted to exploring and furthering the esoteric, literary and artistic aspects of life in London and beyond. www.thelasttuesdaysociety.org

There is nowhere else like this, not on the ocean lashed final salty pier of Coney Island nor bunkers of Tasmania, a place to get regally smashed on illegal absinthe, for they serve it here in secret from their ancient bar, whilst admiring the sheer perversity of the owner’s artifacts, the sheer range of peculiarity Wynd has hoarded to himself over the difficult decades.

Viktor Wynd the most interesting man in England; for here is someone entirely imaginary, strictly fictional, yet enormously physically real

Viktor Wynd: The Unnatural History Museum (Prestel 2020)

I feel that Viktor Wynd is revealing more about himself than many other collectors dare to do in his museum as well as in this book, The Unnatural History Museum. It’s a very intimate book.

The third book by artist and collector Viktor Wynd, The Unnatural History Museum, was published by Prestel in March. The book is about Wynd’s very own Wunderkabinett, or cabinet of curiosities, The…

The Story Behind the Museum of Curiosities, East London

What do Siamese piglets, dodo bones and a biscuit half-eaten by David Attenborough have in common? Very little, except these and other oddities can be found at Viktor Wynd’s extraordinary and imaginative museum. Culture Trip pays a visit.

If you have a taste for the macabre or even the downright peculiar, the Museum of Curiosities in East London is the place to visit.

Are you still open? I would like to go in tomorrow evening. Thank you
Thoroughly enjoyed my time here! Can't wait for you guys to reopen
Look what's just arrived! He's So Cute! I've called him Freddie and he's currently hanging out with the dinosaurs. ☺️🧡🐻 Thank You!!
Looking for two tickets to the Krampus Dark Christmas. :)
Hi, what are your opening hours over the Christmas break, specifically Friday 28th December?
I've just been to your museum with a friend... what an absolutely amazing museum it is! Here are a couple of videos to keep you amused: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5-o8IvHZGo and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUyXUhTGfD8 They are a little more bear-related than panther-related but they might afford some entertainment :) Whether they do or not, we shall definitely return and enjoy some more excellent food and drink and the fascinating museum. And what stunning-looking humans we saw in there, too - never mind that sexy panther with that lovely, shiny black head :) :) :)
Finally managed to shoe-horn the menagerie into an article! I love my job. Can't wait to come for another visit soon.
We had an amazing time here, celebrating my birthday with absinth. I even got a signed book. 💅🏻😘😈💃💋🐝🍑✌️💜
My daughter and I had a brilliant time at the 'Halouminati' evening. Convivial company,fascinating cheeseman and hugely generous glasses of wine!
Seem to remember a great deal of interest in PNG over in this lovely wee corner of fb. In which case would you mind awfully giving this a bit of a plug? Many thanks
