Located up a six-story walkup in a private apartment on the Lower East Side, the Troll Museum is undeniably one of the most interesting and unusual sights in New York City – a reputation it has held for nearly fifteen years. On December 4th, the New York Adventure Club gained access to the troll-laden apartment for a special tour led by museum founder and curator Reverend Jen. Here are 10 things to know about the Troll Museum we learned on our visit:

1. There are over 400 trolls in the Troll Museum

While an inventory check has never been conducted at the Troll Museum, a friend of Reverend Jen once offered to help count each and every troll as a token of her appreciation for the collection. Unfortunately, after three days of painstakingly counting trolls of different sizes and hair color, the friend stopped at 400 to avoid “permanent insanity.”
