Welcome to The Skeptiseum

Welcome to The Skeptiseum, the skeptically-oriented museum of the paranormal, parascientific, and the outright strange.


 Supernatural, paranormal and pseudoscientific beliefs proliferate worldwide. This virtual museum includes descriptions and images of artifacts and souvenirs associated with such beliefs from around the world.  Hosted by the Center For Inquiry Transnational Headquarters in Amherst, N.Y., each item in our halls and collections is represented in the real-world collection of Center For Inquiry Senior Research Fellow Dr. Joe Nickell.  Please take a look around, and you'll see that we have many galleries filled with artifacts and information that we hope you'll find both educational and entertaining.


The Skeptiseum is a proud member of the Small Museum Association.


 Mission Statement


The Skeptiseum seeks to use its collection of historical artifacts relating to paranormal and other fringe-science claims to further invenstigations, educate the public, and to  encourage critical thinking and use of the scientific method.
