The Museum of Fear and Wonder, located in Bergen, Alta., is the creation of brothers Brendan and Jude Griebel. The items on display are described by the brothers as being “emotionally uneasy,” and their website states the museum aims to highlight the psychological and narrative qualities of objects. Check out the photo gallery and see how it makes you feel.
