In 2010, the Troll Museum was the site of a massive steam pipe explosion that damaged a large portion of the collection, including art pieces and the trolls themselves. Scars of this disaster can still be seen around the museum, which include warped paintings, washed out letters, and even a blinded troll. Other damaging incidents have been attributed to the earthquake of 2011, pyromaniac friends with blowtorches, and Reverend Jen’s troll-munching Chihuahua named Rev. Jen Jr.
