Vent Haven Museum reviews
The creator originally wanted to call this museum “The Odditorium” and that would have been fun. This is a wonderful museum you don’t see everywhere. In fact it’s the only one like it in the world...

Awesome place to be. The new building is going to be awesome 😎👍
Amazing tour, thank you Lisa! You are so passionate and knowledgeable! We absolutely loved seeing the collection! We didn’t know a lot about ventriloquism before the tour, but realized during the tour how much this has been an important part of American entertainment. Loved seeing Madame, and the Charlie McCarthy collection, and the photos of famous people who used ventriloquism as part of their act. All the best with the new building - so happy to hear there will be rest rooms!
