If there's one word that comes to mind for the building and contents of the Henry Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA, it's steampunk. Mom, if you're reading this, steampunk is a genre of science fiction that features old machinery rather than advanced technology.

This building, which was designed by Mr. Mercer, is made out of concrete. Who would have guessed? Again, the guy had a thing for concrete.

It's a hoarder's heaven of tools, old gadgets, machinery, you name it. 

 The staircases throughout the museum were phenomenal.Very grandiose in a concrete kind of way.

The contents in this part of the museum were gracefully arranged, albeit very cluttered. Items hang from the ceiling and railings. If Salvador Dali were alive, he'd love the chaos of this place.
