The Oddment Emporium

A Cornucopia of Eclectic Delights

The Frog Museum

The Frog Museum in Switzerland originated in the 1850s when an eccentric Napoleonic guard began collecting dead frogs on his walks in the countryside. When he returned home he would gut them, fill the skins with sand, and arrange them into satirical tableaux depicting domestic life in the 19th century.
