“collection of classic movie monsters”
The Witch's Dungeon Classic Movie Museum in Bristol, Connecticut is a collection of figures of classic movie monsters. The museum is owned by Bristol-native Cortlandt Hull. In 1966, Cortlandt's father helped him build the Swiss chalet-style building to house the museum. Cortlandt built life-size figures of classic movie monsters that were made of wax, fine wire mesh, papier-mache and polymers. The figures were later replaced with more accurate ones. The museum is only open on weekend evenings during the month of October, and due to size is limited to groups of three. It takes approximately 7 minutes to walk through the 40 by 17 foot structure. The heads of many of the figurines have been based on life-casts of the actual actors who portrayed them. Background sets and clothing are authentic to the era, with some costumes or props actually used in the original films.
The expansion of last year has destroyed the overall fun this once small attraction offered. Higher admission with rude and unprofessional employees that act as if they're only there to rush the crowd thru in order to make more money. Not worth the wait time and certainly not worth the money just to be treated like you're bothering them with a simple question or two...needs to be shut down permanently!!
