Surprising, yes, but there is only one museum about bunnies in the world and it will stay open on Labor Day to ensure the world does not go bunniless for even a day.
The Bunny Museum in Altadena, with over 36,000 bunny objects was co-founded by Candace Frazee and Steve Lubanski, who started collecting the items after a tradition of gifting each other new bunnes daily, opened the museum in 1998.
Now, the Bunny Museum is a world record-holding collectionary dedicated to rabbits in all their furry, hopping glory.
Located in a mid-century building, the museum’s collection includes ceramic bunnies, stuffed bunnies, cookie-jar bunnies and nine Rose Parade float bunnies. The strangest pieces may be the freeze-dried rabbits, which were once household pets and are now kept in a glass display case.
The museum has held the world record for “owning the most bunny items in the world” since 1999 when it was acknowledged by the Guinness World Records. At that point in time, it housed 8,473 pieces of bunny memorabilia.
The slogan of the museum is “The Hoppiest place in the World.”
On Labor Day, entrance tickets to the Bunny Museum are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and military personnel, and $8 for children. Cell phones and small cameras are permitted, but no flash, tripods, video cameras, easels, or selfie sticks will be allowed.

The Bunny Museum is located at 2605 Lake Avenue in Altadena.
