Dr Cagliostro’s Cabinet of Curiosities.

The Dark Museum

During the second half of the 18th century, the adventurer, occultist and alchemist Count Alessandro Cagliostro gathered a remarkable collection of occult and mysterious items that whispered of an unknown world, far beyond reason and science.

In 1789, Count Cagliostro was arrested by the Inquisition and sentenced to death and the infamous collection disappeared without a trace. When it resurfaced in London 1844, the owner, who called himself Dr Cagliostro, had decided to make it available to the public. The collection was displayed alongside the many penny gaffs, curiosity displays and freak shows of Tom Norman, William Bullock and P. T. Barnum.

Over the years, numerous extraordinary and disturbing items from the most shunned corners of the world have found their way to this somewhat unusual museum. Ominous objects whose strange providences emanate from worlds both beyond and within our own. The collection is constantly growing and several initiates have called Dr Cagliostro’s Cabinet of Curiosities one of the best occult museums in Europa.
