Edward Scissorhands' House Turned Into A Museum

Some fans who purchased the house featured in Tim Burton's '80s classic Edward Scissorhands have now transformed the building into a makeshift museum dedicated to the film, featuring merch, posters, props, and oddities tied to the production. Since the Klops family bought the Boggs house about a year ago, they have repainted and redecorated it to more closely resembled its onscreen appearance, and gathered together their collection, in part through donations from neighbors who lived in the area when the movie was in production. And, yes, "museum" might seem like a strong way of saying it...but considering they are offering actual tours of the house to other fans, it seems pretty appropriate.

Joey Klops and his wife have named the Tampa home "Scissorland." The pair shared some photos and insights with TMZ, who posted them today.

Among the goodies the Klops have on display is a license plate that neighborhood residents had to have on their cars so that they could get into the neighborhood while the film was in production. That, obviously, makes it one of the rarest collectables imaginable. They also had an actual pair of the scissors from the movie, and apparently a pack of Johnny Depp's abandoned cigarettes, which...okay. It's notable, at least, in that Klops says Depp was the only actor Burton allowed to smoke in the house during production, so it's an odd piece of movie trivia brought to life.

The pair have done very little painting and renovation, trying to keep it as close to the original form as possible, including keeping the original kitchen cabinets from the film.

Klops isn't just a super-fan; he's been there from the beginning. According to Netflix, Joey Klops was a dishwasher for cast and crew when the film was shooting in his town.

Klops and his wife don't charge for tours of the house, but do ask that their fellow fans respect the neighborhood.

Starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. Depp delivers the performance that launched his career, as Edward, an irresistibly charming creation with razor-sharp metal hands and a heart of gold. Edward's lonely life in a Gothic castle changes forever when he meets a kind-hearted Avon Lady (Dianne Wiest), who takes him to a pastel paradise known as Suburbia. Thanks to his fantastic talents, Edward becomes a neighborhood sensation, but when he falls in love with Kim (Winona Ryder), he must go to extraordinary lengths to protect her.
