101-103 BoweryIn 1881, Worth's Museum and Congress of Living and Intimate Curiosities opened at 101 Bowery. Like other dime museums which lined the Bowery, Worth's offered a variety of freakish amusements, such as the largest specimen of giant squid in North America and what was claimed to be the preserved head of Charles Julius Guiteau - the assassin of President James Garfield. Children who brought a live mouse to feed to the museum's 54 rattlesnakes, (sic) were admitted for free.
