curiosities ♦ oddities ♦ antiquities
Our benefactor , Miss Eugenia Emmelian Havisham, once said “The pursuit and the discovery of the unknown, the wonderful, the curious, is something that has long lived in all of us but has been forgotten. Now is the age to awaken it in all of us.”.
Curioporium is your doorway into that awakening. Walk through our doors into a atmosphere that makes the impossible possible. Curiosities and curated antiquities have been gathered from all parts of the known and unknown world for patrons of all ages to explore with all their senses. From unearthed artifacts from the troll tombs of the Dovre Mountains in Norway to excavated Septarian Dragon Stones from Madagascar, your curiosity and imagination will awaken to find the veil between worlds a little thinner. We’re a refuge from the banality of the norm and a bridge into the forgotten.
what wonders await…
The Frankenstein Twins proudly present PHOTOS WITH KRAMPUS at Curioporium!
Are you tired of the oppressiveness of mall Santas bringing you down each year? This December, The Frankenstein Twins have the remedy for your holiday doldrums- we’re inviting Krampus to town, and they want to take a picture with YOU.
Guests will enjoy the opportunity to have high-quality professional photos taken with Krampus in our interactive holiday display, sure to become your family’s favorite holiday heirloom for years to come.
While you wait for your turn to meet Krampus, check out our mini gallery of Krampus-inspired artwork from artists all across CT, enjoy a curious cocktail, indulge in delightful hors d’oeuvres, and of course, peruse the selection of strange and unusual goods from Curioporium.
We will be featuring five artists who will be creating mini-popup displays throughout the store, as well!
Tickets will include high quality digital photo downloads with Krampus, hors d’oeuvre, refreshments, and bewitching magic tricks and juggling from Fright Haven’s Bobby Arel. Don’t miss an unforgettable evening!
Miss Havisham is always looking to showcase new talent at Curioporium. Take to our stage for a one act play, mesmerize us with your storytelling, adorn our walls with your works of art or have your group meet-up at a venue like no other. We encourage artists of all genres and mediums to reach-out to us. In most cases using our space is at no cost. Come spread the culture. Call or email us.
Curio of the Moment
Tuatha de Danaan Druid
Discovered preserved in a burial mound in the Newgrange burial mound in the Boyne Valley by Miss Havisham . This druid is truly a one of a kind find and can be traced all the way back to the beginning days of the Eire.
