The Bunny Museum, Pasadena, California
The Museum: If Monty Python’s killer Rabbit of Caerbannog freaked you out, you may want to steer clear of this museum. What started as a simple Valentine’s Day gift—a plush bunny holding an “I Love You This Much” banner—in 1993 exploded into a collection of some 23,000 bunnies—stuffed, ceramic, plastic, and more. Husband-and-wife duo Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski have spent the last 15 years collecting bunny paraphernalia; they converted their Pasadena home into a museum of quirky collectibles, urging curious travelers to “hop on over” to peruse their unique collection.
The Exhibits: The most recognizable item of the collection may be the Elvis “Parsley,” a water pitcher shaped like a bunny dressed as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. But the strangest exhibit of this museum is definitely “The Garden of Broken Dreams,” a graveyard of broken bunny artifacts. Says a sign: “No broken bunny is thrown away, just planted to grow again!”
