Monster Kabinett, Rosenthaler Straße 39, Berlin

Monster Kabinett lives up to its name and displays strange and huge robotic creatures, insect-like animals, clanking metal sculptures and things that go bump in the night. The museum is the brainchild of the Dead Pigeon Collective, a group of artists. Along with the strange art, costumed people put on a scary show from Wednesdays to Saturday. While it is safe to visit, the intention of the artists is to inspire fear and dread in their visitors.
