This is a hidden gem in Massachusetts. If you're a fan of Steampunk you'll love it and if you're not you'll soon be! There are so many outstanding pieces that Bruce and Melanie constructed and to delight you with stories of the different materials that make up their wonderment of steampunk whimsicals. It's like an ISPY game with all the pieces you can spot in the sculptures and with Bruce's enthusiasm of pointing out pieces you may or may not know about. This museum really has alittle bit of everything for everyone. On top of their steampunk delights their house is a church! The live and work in the church house/museum. Super innovative and creative. Can't wait to go back and see more in a few months.

Bruce was incredibly accommodating during these crazy COVID times, and man was the visit worth the wait! Bruce's story is inspiring, his workspace is wicked cool, and the steampunkery is on point. Modvic is a must visit for makers, steampunkers, and the curious at heart ❤️ IG:@LLLyerly

About ModVic

Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum noticed their roof was leaking shortly after moving into their 100-year-old Victorian house in Sharon, MA. That repair set off a domino effect for the next 12 years of renovation and revitalization and awakened their passion for home improvement. In 2007, the ModVic (Modern Victorian) company was established. The team of renovators who all shared the vision of restoring the Victorian house with modern conveniences collaborated on the concept and got down to work.

The Rosenbaums have continued their work with homeowners, museums, boutique hotels, restaurants, breweries, schools, and corporations, fusing History, Art and Technology with a Steampunk foundation. Wired Magazine has since given Bruce the unofficial title "Steampunk Evangelist", while the Wall Street Journal called him a "Steampunk Guru". Their work has been covered by multiple media outlets such as NPR and the New York Times.

Clients from tattoo artists to patent lawyers have ordered one-of-a-kind, functional art. Their style brings together eras and ideas and integrates modern technology with meaningful salvaged pieces. The Steampunk design repurposes period objects and artifacts in new ways, while also telling a story of resilience. They also work with other artists who have a love of Steampunk to create art shows, exhibitions and events.

ModVic has expanded recently, moving into an 1876 gothic church in Palmer, MA. It's been featured on Netflix's "Amazing Interiors"-Steampunk Wonderland.
