Trish Bright's Museum of Whimsy in downtown Astoria is a museum like no other. Its unique collections, assembled over many years with an eye to the curious, the whimsical and the fantastic, are displayed in the architectural splendor of architect, John Wicks' neo-classical bank building of 1924, refurbished in grand style and itself an integral part of the MOW experience.
REMINDER! SPECIAL DAYS MOW WILL BE OPEN - OCT. 13th, 14th, 15th, (sat sun mon) FROM 11:00 - 5:00. Admission $5 per person $10 per family. LAST DAYS MOW WILL BE OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC! HOPE TO SEE YOU!
In the future..... The MOW building and exhibits are private and will no longer be open to the general public. I will, however, be giving exclusive group tours of the MOW exhibits once a month which can be booked via an independent, local tour guide. These tours will be given by me and will include stories about each exhibit and a history on the building and its renovation process followed by a tea or other social gathering. These tours will start after the Winter and I will post all the details here.
Parking available in MOW's private lot located at 1303 Exchange Street around the corner from MOW. Look for MOW Parking Only signs.
