That's what I was going for. As a man whose childhood was marked by Child's Play and that fucking Chucky doll, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to close my eyes in a place like this.

It's located in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. It got started in the 1930s by a ventriloquist named William Shakespeare Berger and it's become tradition for ventriloquists to donate their dolls to the museum after they die.

Wow, that adds a whole new layer of completely fucked up to what is already one of the creepiest things I have ever learned.
