Trundle Manor, Pittsburgh

#21 of 25 in Tours in Pittsburgh
Billed as a roadside attraction located in Swissvale Pa., Trundle Manor is one of the few "wunderkammers" in existence on the east coast, and perhaps in the whole country. This fascinating residential artist house is created and curated by Mr.Arm and his lovely girl, Velda Von Minx. The house is open to visitors by appointment only, but available nearly any time of the day.

Featured on Boingboing.net, Odd places I've Seen, MTV Extreme Cribs, and Roadside America.

  • I was able to take a taxidermy class for the day. our group stuffed some rabbits. super chill and easy atmosphere, not to mention gorgeous curios all over the place. some of the friendliest folks you'll ever meet as well. there's a piece of interest for nearly anyone out there but if you aren't a fan of tight quarters or death in general, it's probably not for you.
  • Very unique very special collection. Don't go if you hate taxidermy! Tons of other interesting things though
