With its roots in the sideshows of the old traveling fairs and the touring tent shows of oddities, Mr Punch's Cabinet of Curiosities brings a magical, wonderful and sometimes gruesome selection of displays for your entertainment and education.
Come and witness these extraordinary objects and learn about their history and provenance.
Find out why Mr Punch is locked for ever in his booth.
Explore the secrets of the sea and discover those tales the old sailors swear by may not be so far-fetched after all.
View the tools used to identify supernatural creatures.
See the macabre collection one man travelled the country with.
And other enthralling exhibits of curiosities, haunted objects, artifacts, assemblages and preserved oddities.
For those guests with a strong constitution you will be offered a chance to interact with one final, very special exhibit, but you do so at entirely your own risk…
Due to the nature of some of the exhibits it may not be suitable for those of a nervous disposition or who are easily offended.
Entry for our younger guests is at parental discretion. We appreciate that all children are different and what is suitable for one may be a little scary for another. We like to think the cabinet is no more scary than an episode of Dr Who. We have had many younger guests who have enjoyed a visit.
We are more than happy for you to come and view the exhibits first to check it would be suitable for your younger guests. If you are unsure, please ask before entering.
If you have any questions or would like more information please let us know when you arrive and we will do our best to help
