What started as a hobby for thirteen year old, Cortlandt Hull, in the 60's has turned into a business that is continuing more than forty years later. Cortlandt's passion for putting together monster models led to him creating a life-size homemade figure of a witch. This in turn inspired his parents to open a wax museum to feature their teenage son's creations in 1966. Cortlandt's first creation, the witch figure, has become the Dungeon's mascot, Zenobia.
The museum has had the support of many horror celebrities, including Vincent Price and Dick Smith. Actors Vincent Price, Mark Hamill, June Foray and John Agar all recorded voices for the museum tour.

The business is currently in the process of expanding into an even larger museum dedicated to classic films. The museum will feature actual props and prosthetics used in horror films.
The museum is a seasonal attraction and is only open on weekends in the month of October. For more information about times and schedule, please visit their site below.
