Time Out says

Not for the faint of heart, this macabre exhibit definitely doesn’t shy away from the issue of death and dying. Guests get a cultural look at how the inevitable fate was handled from the 18th to 20th centuries. Channel ghosts at the spirit photo booth and gawk at surreal grieving paraphernalia like death masks, art shadowboxes and memorial cards. “The Art of Mourning” was curated by musem founder Joanna Ebenstein. Be sure to check out never-before-seen artifacts from the private collection of Sleeping Beauty author Stanley B. Burns.
