7 odd museums to visit

7 odd museums to visit
07/13/2017 Alicia L.

Everybody loves traveling. I made a small list with seven odd museums all over the world that I would love to visit.

If someone wants to tell us their experience or if you know any other bizarre place please feel free to share with us in the comments section.

1.The Neon Museum

Who doesn’t like good bright neon? Imagine a museum full of it. It’s located in Las Vegas and for $7 you can take the night tour. It will be worth it.

2. The Surnatéum

This is a private collection located in Brussels where you can see a lot of objects and paraphernalia related to supernatural history: magic books, sorcery, cursed objects, occult books… Among its most prized possessions are a wonderful vampire hunter kit from 1899 and a Blomberg set ready to destroy any evil spirit.

3. The UFO Museum
Where would it be? In Roswell (New Mexico), of course. This museum and research center is a classic. Believers and skeptics alike will enjoy this museum full of objects and documents about the mysterious flying object that crashed in that area in 1947. For $5 you’ll get more questions than answers.

4. The Meguro Museum of Parasites

I can’t imagine it! It’s just plain nasty. It’s in Japan and is the only museum about this subject. It welcomes all audiences but most of them are science fanatics. It has more than 300 specimens on display and you can learn all about their life cycle.

5. The museum of medieval torture

In quiet Amsterdam, you will find this museum with more than 100 torture devices. If you don’t want to go that far, here in Toledo (Spain) is the exhibition of old torture instruments used by the Spanish Inquisition.

6-International Cryptozoology Museum

This museum is located in Maine (USA) and is coordinated by the famous Loren Coleman. It has a great collection of “unknown” animals that have not been verified by science. If you’re a fan of the Kraken, the Yeti or Bigfoot you’ll find cool evidence gathered by the world.

7-The ugly art museum (MOBA)

What started as a private collection is now a museum with a collection of over 500 works. Works bad, ugly, and tacky. Artworks so incredibly ugly that they can not go unnoticed. With three different locations in the US and online view, you can not miss this museum. Also,  they accept donations. If you have any seedy and dud artwork, you know where to leave it for others to admire.

    Ah yes, there’s also a museum of torture in Rothenburg ob der Taube, Germany. 5 floors of awfulness. We gave up on the last floor.
    The parasites museum is quite intriguing, although, parasites are displayed in any good natural history musem. There’s a great one in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, btw.
    The Picasso museum in Paris is wonderful (and I don’t even particular like Picasso), so is the Rodin Museum (Paris as well) and the medieval history (again Paris). In Berlin, I really like the Bauhaus, the Jewish Musum from Daniel Liebeskind, the modern art Museum by Mies van der Rohe and the Museums in Dahlem, …
    In London, I really liked the Tate. In Barcelona, anything from Gaudi.
    Ok, I will just stop now, too many beautiful museums in the world.

    The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History in London is worth the visit and has a cocktail bar!
