National Museum of Funeral History opening: Dracula Cemetery Exhibition

Photo by Monica Rhodes

Did you know that Dracula really existed? Learn all about Vlad "The Impaler" Tepes, who was the basis of the story Dracula. His fame and notoriety came from his insatiable cruelty and his penchant for consuming parts of his victims, namely drinking their blood. View the original Dracula book on display and learn about phrases and terms used today that were coined in the 15th and 16th centuries, like graveyard shift, dead ringer and saved by the bell.

Guests are encouraged to don a cape and fangs and have their photo taken in a coffin.

On view through Oct. 31.
