Sleepy Hollow at Muzeo

Not feeling too wordy today, so here’s a bunch of photos from the Legend: 200 Years of Sleepy Hollow at Muzeo in Anaheim, CA.  Muzeo is a lovely little museum up the street from Disneyland.  It’s basically a big black box that affords flexibility for each exhibit it hosts.  I’ve seen Napoleon’s hat, costumes from Downton Abbey, part of Cheech Marin’s Chicano art collection, Russian icons, Buffalo soldier uniforms, spyware and rad black leather jackets, among other things.  If you’re ever in the area, look them up at

So it begins…
I’m ready for Fall, Y’all!
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving, originally appeared in a book of short stories.
Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow New York embrace their literary history.
Bing Crosby and Basil Rathbone!
Dark Shadows, Wishbone and Mad–everybody jumps on the Sleepy Hollow bandwagon!
Vinyl: Glenn Close, Boris Karloff and Hurd Hatfield (the original Dorian Gray)
First Day Covers of the US Postal Service stamp issued in 1974 and a deck of playing cards.
Handmade replica of the dress worn by Christina Ricci in Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow. The picture in the upper right shows the detail of the black stripes, which were drawn with Sharpies and took 100 hours to complete!


This is a very small exhibit curated by a student from Cal State University Fullerton. I think it’s so cool that Muzeo and CSUF worked together to make this happen! Plenty of fun things to see that brought back memories for The Husband. Here’s some of the artwork that was on display and is actually for sale.

Beautiful artwork and frame.
I loved the blue piece on the bottom and was so happy that they had a print of it in the gift shop.
Love the little details in this one.
The Husband liked both of these.

So, if you’re in the area and want to spend a pleasant hour immersing yourself in all things Headless Horseman, you can get tickets online or at the gift shop. Your ticket also includes entrance to the Carnegie Gallery next door, currently hosting a local art exhibit and the permanent Anaheim: A Walk Through Local History exhibit.
