MORBITORIUM

Curios for the curious, oddities for the odd

 

We love all things weird at the Morbitorium. It doesn’t matter whether we’re making Ouija boards for our store or teaching people to stuff mice, we’re happy. Our hands-on taxidermy classes are suitable for complete beginners and we also supply a wide range of handmade and vintage curiosities on our online store.  

 

Taxidermy classes

Our one-day taxidermy classes are suitable for complete beginners. We'll walk you through the entire process and at the end of the day you take your finished piece home with you. Located in South Wales, a few miles north of M4 (Junction 28).

Shop

Our motto is "Curios for the curious, oddities for the odd" and we hope that our store reflects that. Whether you are looking for horror themed bookmarks or an articulated bat skeleton we've got you covered.

Our collection

Our ever growing collection of curiosities have been photographed, sketched and otherwise inspected by art students, documentary makers and the general public. Only a small selection of it has been photographed and featured here.

About us

The Morbitorium was originally founded in late 2014 when we opened our online store and traded at our first convention. The feedback we received was incredible and this encouraged us to keep going and to expand our product range, which now includes the mildly weird (horror themed bookmarks) to the downright bizarre (taxidermied unicorn lamb).

We have supplied pieces to various TV and theatre productions (you may have seen some of our items on the recent BBC series “Nature’s Weirdest Events”) and have also been featured in numerous newspaper articles, magazines and online blogs.

We make all of our products, teach classes and house the collection in a converted 18th-century canal-side cottage in the South Wales valleys where I live with my fiance and an ever-expanding menagerie of animals.

We aim to provide you with high-quality unusual products at reasonable prices regardless of whether these are antique/vintage items or things that we have created ourselves. We pride ourselves on our customer service and always try to work to our clients’ specifications wherever practicable.
