Information About the Museum
The Museum of Unnatural Mystery is the
brainchild of Lee Krystek. Mr. Krystek had for a long time wanted
to build a museum that would explore the fringe edges of science
and at the same time use those subjects to get people interested
in the more mundane aspects of scientific work. A brick and
mortar museum was far beyond his means, but the creation of
the world wide web provided a medium that was affordable enough
for him to realize his dream.

College of New Jersey with a Masters of Arts in Teaching.
At that time he also received the coveted Dean of Education's
Award for Academic Excellence.
