I was delighted when a friend invited me here for a drink as I’d been meaning to visit for ages.
Found at the bottom of Mare Street, just by the canal, you enter The Museum of Curiosities by the friendly bar. Enter into a Wunderkammer of the rare, curious and wonderful, displayed in carefully themed groups. Contemporary art shares space with taxidermy, skeletons and variously identified artefacts in a dimly-lit and musty-smelling environment. I definitely recommend it.
