Pictorial residue from a trip to the Glore Psychiatric Museum.


I'm sure plenty has also been learned from the experience of those who have suffered psychiatric "treatment."


I found something very unsettling about this, the first display of the tour. Outside the window is a beautiful world; inside things are not quite right.






Centrifuge and detail.


E.E.G. machinery.


The "tranquilizer chair." I know I felt relaxed just being near it. Egad.






Chairs and chairs.


"Lunatic Asylum Pipe Line."






The end of the line. The end of the tour. Most of the exhibit pieces were moved to the museum in which they're currently housed from the adjacent facility which is now a prison. The morgue, however, always existed in this building, formerly an administration annex. The slabs are still functional. Rooms with drains in the floor have always made me uneasy.

Have you seen the museum at Menninger in Topeka? Also a frightening journey.
