If you can’t get enough of Norman and Norma’s insanity on A&E’s criminally underrated (and thrilling) BATES MOTEL, you might want to book a flight to New York. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has installed a replica of the legendary house behind the motel on its roof. Twenty-eight feet tall, the art piece is about two-thirds the size of the original structure. Cornelia Parker, the British artist who created the installation from an abandoned barn from the 1920s in upstate New York, told the Wall Street Journal, “It’s two objects together. One is a fictional object, which is the PSYCHO house, and the other is a real thing, which is the barn. It’s all fake but all real at the same time.”

Just a facade, you can check out the back of the piece — named “Transitional Object (PsychoBarn)” — only until October 31. When Halloween come around, the installation will come down. Great reason to hit the Big Apple!
