Not knowing what to expect we entered the museum through the gift shop and were immediately intrigued. There were a large selection of hearses from the past 125 years and a large gallery of celebrity and historical funeral items. There was a gallery just for...More
When I first saw a sign for the Funeral Museum, I didn't know what to think. I'm so glad I pressed ahead with a visit not knowing what to expect. There's so much to see, allow at least 2 hours or more. There's a fine...More
Visited the museum quite sceptically because my family member wanted to go here. Once inside there was loads of different items on show and lots of information it’s not a really morbid affair as you’d initially think but very interesting instead and shows some vehicles...More
We always go in October. There’s so much to learn. It takes about 2 hrs to get through because there’s so much reading. They do not have audio tours so it’s not accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. They are willing to...More

We are visiting relatives nearby and wanted something local to do today. They had never been here either. We were all amazed by the extensive collection. Extremely informative on history, customs, etc. We all learned a lot and would recommend to others!

So you know, it's not a big building nor does it "stand out" (unless you were looking for it, you might not notice it). It's tucked away in a residential neighborhood, but a few blocks from the main drag. It's best described as a "mom and pop" type of museum--no frills place. That being said, it's certainly an interesting museum, just don't expect it to be more than a 1-2 hour visit.
