Ripley’s Believe it or Not move over - an all-new museum has just opened up on the next block over from the inn and we are excited! Are you into the rare and unusual? Do you trade, buy, collect, or just like to check out amazing things? If so, definitely stop in Wolf’s Museum of Mystery on Charlotte Street in Downtown St Augustine.
Bonnie Nicol St. Augustine's local Ghost and Gravestones tour host and history teller recollects here experience from a recent visit to this place of mystery just the other day! She had the pleasure of meeting the owner’s wife Ali who operates the museum with her husband Wolfgang of course and their daughter Justice. In amazement she writes a short summary and encourages all our visitors to check it out!
Here is what she had to say…
From the outside, Wolf's doesn't look out of the ordinary; it's an old, two story wood house, sandwiched between the Hyppo and Fudge Buckets, on cobble-stoned Charlotte Street. But look closely and carved monsters fill the windows. A clown doll with an evil grin stands next to the door. Cross the porch and go inside, I swear the first thing that will strike you is how cozy Wolf's is, despite its bizarre collection. The entry parlor is draped with red silk curtains, an animatronic, pumpkin-headed ghoul next to the door cackles as you enter. A black kitten runs up the staircase, sticks its tiny head through the banister, and swats at the edge of a Kevorkian painting leaning against the side of the stairs.
Dim lights cast a warm glow over glass cases filled with oddities; Nazi Stahlhelms sit next to cursed monkey's paw talismans and well-endowed fertility idols.
This place is open year-round – not just Halloween!!
