If you like dead bodies, two-headed taxidermied kittens and strong coffee, you'll love Brooklyn's Morbid Anatomy Museum
. I've long wanted to take a trek to visit, and my wish finally came true on a cold day late last January. I had the good fortune to see their incredible House of Wax
current exhibition as well as their permanent collection of oddities related to the human body, death, and other mortal subjects. Lucky for me I had a minute with the museum's creative director, Joanna Ebenstein
, to talk organs and our shared fascination with all bodily things. If you're in NY or elsewhere, be sure to put this place on your list of things to do before you die.
