Did you know the Munster’s lived in Texas? Yes, the Munsters from the 1960’s television show!
Okay, Herman, Lilly and family don’t actually live here, but in Waxahachie there is a detailed replica of the Munster Mansion, and you can take a tour!
It’s the private home of the McKee family. The McKee’s love the television show so much that they built a replica of the house in Waxahachie! The house is open for private tours and monthly Murder Mystery Dinners throughout the year!
The house is amazing! As soon as you enter, you are met by “Spot” the dragon, who lives under the stairs! The iconic “coffin phone booth” is also visible, and guides assured us the phone actually works! You can’t believe the detail they have put into this house! Many of the items in the home are either exact replicas, or were actually used in the show!
There are even hidden passageways and revolving doors! In all, we saw the entry, living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, Marilyn’s bedroom, Grandpa’s bedroom and laboratory, and Eddie’s bedroom.
After the tour, we went into the little theatre room to watch one of the old episodes of The Munsters! Here is where I confess that my kids had NEVER seen the show before, but they laughed and enjoyed seeing how many items they could recognize from the tour!
During a special event, Mr and Mrs. McKee dress up as Herman and Lilly, and go out to meet their guest!
Here’s a tip! Although it may be tempting to want to drive by to see the house, do be careful as it’s on a curve in the road, and slowing down or stopping could be very dangerous!
