Default Last minute brain fart, name for spooky museum??

I just had a last minute idea, took a bunch of left over decorations, moved some of random oddities that sit around our house year round, threw a bunch of spanish moss and cobwebs around, had my son put together some specimen jars, and turned our kids' classroom into a spooky museum for our party this weekend. I want to make a sign for the door, but my brain is fried, and I can't think of a name for our new little museum... Does anyone still have enough waking portion of brain left in the final scramble for cleverness? I guess I'm spent, lol. Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

By the alarmingly low amount of responses in this thread Nixie, I think it would be safe to assume that all of our brains are fried too, LMAO.

How about The Museum Needful Things or The Museum of Unwanted Things.

LOL @ Dixie and Deb! Thanks for the great suggestions! My clever little seven year old just suggested the Museum of Natural Mysteries! Gotta love the brainy lil' guy!

Just goes to show, Nixie, need a good idea, ask a kid

Your child gets an A+, gold star, and smiley face for that idea

Dr or Professor XXXXXXXXx Cabinet of Curiosities.
A cabinet of curiosity is what most natural history museums started out as. They were a combination freak show, natural history, science, and sometimes "paranormal" attractions.
If you want artwork for a sign, PM me with a email address and I'll send something to you quick. Include the size paper you can or are willing to print to, and whether you want plain black and white or full color.
Attached is a quick and low resolution for your sign.
