You'll discover there are no secrets
in his Cabinet of Curiosity
His Zymoglyphic Museum
Where Evolution is Creation
Creation is Evolution
The result is always Poetry
Take a walk around the neighborhood
and try not to wake up
Or you'll miss the wonderful beauty
of the place
The university of dreams, your continuing
education of this earthly cosmos
You arrive a guest and you leave
a member of the family
Whether you admit it or not.

We have labelled incorrectly these dead beings
at the Zymoglyphic Museum,
under your skin a panorama of living creatures
the soil under your painted toes
these strange currents that run within you
culminate in the fogginess of your gaze
we both know the controversy surrounding
we both know of leather-winged folk
who left city lights
to swim again through other jungles
such spectacles at night
moving in a breathless flight.
"The delights provided us by the Zymoglyphic Museum's myriad selections, and even by the relatively elaborate annotations and codifications with which the Museum provides its holdings, are themselves self-evident. The poetry of form, lyricism of association, and economy of function that define every concatenation, that pervade every diorama, rivet us to these apparitions, cementing our fascination and our affection."

Controversy about a hallucinogenic mushroom specimen in the museum's natural history collection
[The dioramas] are kind of like an obscure and evil I-Spy book, with lots of hidden actions and creatures. Also, this website is absolutely crazy
My favorite aquarium
If I had the nose to live in the dust, the General would not be me who would then complain about the ecology and everything possible to speculate and involuntary, so this is my favorite aquarium. Only one club tent in the middle, no glattgeschliff'nes glass, brown algae covers in just outside. And then it would dawn and gush to the ceiling. -- Wonnegrausen [Google translation from German]
The torch of entropy
La fiaccola dell'entropia! La fiaccola dell'entropia!

weird little collection...in a beat-up wooden shed in some dude's driveway -- Schmoo on Obscura Day 2011 [ed. note: The shed is not nearly as beat-up as museum management might prefer]
It's this middle-aged weird dad guy in the suburbs...but it's still very cool -- Obscura Day 2012
today I discovered I'm a zymoglyphile...I'm chuffed pink to have found the proper name for my condition -- poetmcgonagall
Someday I'd like to have my own little museum. There's this one called the Zymoglyphic Museum that I'd love to visit, but it's way out in California and only open a few days a year. It's pretty neat and when I win the lottery I'll go every year, or possibly just buy it and move it to my private island. -- Dating profile, 31F, Marion, Ill.
The Museum of Dust
The Museum of Dust is a shadowy, incorporeal, antitpodean meta-institution that attempted to acquire the Zymoglyphic Museum for its Wunderkammer collection in 2006. It has since returned to its original mission of "gathering dust."
