Throughout the house there are a variety of animatronic contraptions that make music. This is one.

Some are large and elaborate.

Others are smaller.

Here are the controls of one contraption

A detail from one of these pieces.

And detail from another.

Some things in this place are just bizarre.

On the Streets of Yesterday, Jim found the apothecary quite interesting. The advertisement he's pointing out is for opium in three ounce sacs.

Part of the collection of weaponry.

An assortment of glass vessals. This was in the entryway to a bathroom.

Part of the collection of odd and/or rare cars.

Make that cars and other vehicles.

Yes, this car does have a red, heartshaped tub in the back. Why? I have no idea!

Now this one's just classy.
