You can expect all kinds of crazy things at the Museum of Horror in Monroe. For example, courtesy of

“The 18 and over room. That’s called the Red Room,” added Thompson. “It’s set up as a serial killer’s photography developing station. It’s going to have Polaroid photos of real crime scene photos; real murders from the 1800s to present day as well as a map detailing where certain serial killings happened.”

The person responsible for the Museum of Horror is from Monroe. His name is Nate Thompson, who happens to be a legitimate filmmaker.

Monroe has had plenty of time to get things organized for the much anticipated Grand Opening of what he calls "Museum of Horror." If you like all things horror, this place is for you.

You never know what you’ll come across at the museum, like violins from the 1800s made of cat guts. Tarot readings will also be available as well as witch offering cleansing services for anyone who is afraid they may take bad energy home with them.

In my opinion, there's no better time than now, just before Halloween, to venture out and have some fun at the morbid and creepy Museum of Horror!
