Not sure if this is right for this topic but didn't know where else to put it and it's so interesting and a bit macabre!


Sorry not sure that will will work but its the mutter museum in philadelphia which houses many historical oddities. Its fascinating 😊 possibly a little gory too....

I follow them on Facebook, I'd so love to visit one day. As a child we often went to places like Ripley's Believe It Or Not or the Walter Potter museum and it left me with a love of the odd and macabre.

That looks great. The Huntarian museum in London is great if you like odd and macabre things and not too well known so not overly busy (and it's free!).

I looked at the home page and it's not for me.

Something I do find interesting is old customs, like taking photographs of the dead in Victorian times. It bought to live how close death was back then, for folk of all walks of life.

I was there last summer after an American friend recommended it. Highly recommended if you are in Philly. Even my teens found it fascinating.
