Weird in a Good Way: The Elsewhere Museum

There’s no real way of describing the magical mystery that can be found at 606 South Elm Street in Greensboro, NC.

Some call Elsewhere a “collective,” others a “playground.”

Operations curator Valerie Wiseman calls it a “living museum.” But what kind of museum allows you to touch, play, build, nap, and create — and has a “ghost room”?

Summing up the story of the late hoardiculturalist Sylvia Gray wouldn’t do her — or the three-story Neverland that showcases remnants from the massive thrift store she ran for 58 years — justice.

Nor does this quick film from my iPhone (this is definitely one of those places you just have to see for yourself).

But hopefully it at least gets you a little closer.
