One of the rooms at Wolf’s Museum of Mystery in Saint Augustine, Florida (one of my favorite places in the world), is dedicated to the “Blood Countess,” Elizabeth Bathory. The gang at Wolf’s, however, has announced that this exhibit is soon to close. This isn’t necessarily sad news, though, for three reasons. For one thing, I got to see the exhibit in person on two separate occasions. It’s groovy and sexy and atmospherically lit and perfect. Secondarily, if Wolf’s is removing one exhibition, it means that there is another one on the way, one no doubt just as inventive and as interesting as its predecessor. I’m beyond curious to see what they come up with next.
The third reason why we shouldn’t mourn for the dismantling of the Elizabeth Bathory room (located, appropriately and brilliantly enough, in the former upstairs bathroom at Wolf’s, which is based out of an historic two-story house) is that the proprietor’s of Wolf’s made some suggestive comments on social media about us “seeing her again” in the near future, and added the hashtag “interactive.” Now I am for realz curious. Whatever could they mean by that? I will, naturally, keep my ears open and keep you posted.
