Look behind, in between and beyond the monumental marble walls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Musuem of Natural History for some of New York City’s more eccentric museums. This week we explores those more unusual museums and libraries dedicated to iconic toys, wizardry, and the legacy of the mob.

10. The Troll Museum

It all started when owner Reverend Jen got her first troll doll Ariana at the age of nine. Her collection has long since grown to fill a Lower East Side apartment. Booking a tour at the Troll Museum will allow you to enter Reverend Jen’s world filled with costumed troll dolls and hear the inside stories of some haunted and cursed dolls in the collection.
