Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum

Mister Ed's Elephant Museum

On July 5, 2010, Mister Ed's Elephant Museum suffered a horrific fire that caused considerable damage to the collection of over 10,000 elephants. As a result, we lost approximately 2,000 of the elephants in the collection due to the smoke within the building. With those lost elephants, a mosaic was made for above the new checkout. On February 5th, the museum was reopened to the public. Community support for our collection has been absolutely amazing. Currently, we have MORE elephants in our collection than we did before the fire. It still remains one of the largest and most unique collections of elephants in the world!
When you visit the museum you will be surrounded by over 10,000 elephants from all over the world, made from just about every substance known to man.
Mister Ed received his first elephant as a good luck gift on his wedding day in 1967. He has been collecting elephants ever since. Ask him about the one he got in Rio de Janerio.
You would not believe the different kinds of elephant collectibles you will find.... from an elephant potty chair to a hair dryer.... there is even an elephant pulling a 24-karat gold circus wagon.
Mister Ed's Elephant Museum is located at 6019 Chambersburg Road, Orrtanna, PA 17353.
