Not many people realize that one of the most outstanding museums dedicated to tarot is in Heffen-Mechelen, Belgium. Guido Gillabel has recently posted a large number of photos documenting his collection on his Facebook Page (open to all). The museum can be visited in person by appointment. I’m posting a few pictures to give you an idea what to expect from his virtual tour. You’ll find plenty of close-ups. I’ve seen lots of decks and artifacts that I never knew existed and things that have been on my wish-list since forever. Can you find any gems that you’d like to have—like tarot socks or statues in the style of Niki de St.Phalle!
