What's so unusual about this museum that displays antique jewelry and pictures? All items are made of human hair and are authentic antiques at least one hundred years old.

Definitely be into hair and the history of it if you're going to pay the fee. It's not a very lovely looking building on Nolan. But plenty of parking.
