Do you think you have what it takes? The one and only Vampire Museum welcomes guests endowed with a fertile imagination, ready to be confronted with ancient horrors and fantasies. A chamber full of gargoyles, paintings, engravings, trinkets, posters, masks, mirrors, weapons, films, ancient books and grimoires - it is the most complete private collection of vampire and demonic related lore. The museum and its impressive collection exists thanks to Jacques Sirgent, author, storyteller and a dedicated scholar in everything that has to do with vampires, legends and the occult. In his own words : "Legends arose as an anti depression kit for a hostile environment and represent the cravings and fears of people living in a hostile world. The less control people had over their life - the more fantastic the legends and complex the creatures they created. This is why vampires are said to have no reflection in a mirror : They are but the reflection of what we fear and long to find."
Are you ready to confront your own fears? Are you ready to enter the Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures?
