Very interesting place. We spent several hours there. Seriously read the website first and if it's not what you are interested in then stay away instead of writing negative reviews.

Sickening graphic images on dead & mutilated bodies at every turn, slightly diluted by numerous sexist images of naked women. Sleazy clippings from the gutter press, carefully framed and smothered over every square inch of an otherwise historic & beautiful building, covering even the ceilings....More
