This museum, which opened some 20 years ago, is also dedicated for continuous research when it comes to ufo’s and other mysteries involving science and aerospace.
8. Mini Bottle Gallery – Oslo, Norway
This place was put up in this wealthy Scandinavian country for the sole purpose of displaying bottles manufactured from every part of the world. Everybody knows that bottles serve a myriad of functions – and one can find all functions, shapes, and sizes of bottles in this museum. It has indeed an exhaustive collection of bottles.
7. Museum of Mathematics – New York City, USA
Any math wizard here, perhaps? This museum was opened less than 10 years ago with one objective – to re-introduce math to its visitors in a fun and interactive way. Admittedly, a lot of people tend to be scared of math and hate it outrightly. Hence, this museum aims to instill the love of math back in the hearts of people.
6. Museum of Enduring Beauty – Malacca, Malaysia
This one of a kind museum in Malaysia features the concept of beauty and all of its manifestations in Malaysia, Southeast Asia, and the world. It is an excellent concept and has drawn many tourists to Malaysia – which is one of Asia’s tourism superstars. The museum though is not for the faint of heart because the exhibits tend to be too graphic at times.
5. Condom Museum – Nothaburi, Thailand
Thailand earns billions upon billions of dollars from its tourism industry. Admittedly, it also has a burgeoning and firmly established sex industry. The Condom Museum was built and opened in 2010 to promote safe sex among the locals and visitors of this Southeast Asian kingdom. Understandably, kids are denied admission.
4. Cancun Underwater Museum – Cancun, Mexico
Cancun was once a world renowned tourist destination before all the drug-related violence dimmed its once prosperous tourism industry. This lovely museum recreates the experience of being underwater without actually going deep into the ocean. Simmers love this place although the real thing is still the best, of course.
3. Sulabh International Toilet Museum – New Delhi, India
This very unique museum in the Indian capital is dedicated to show its visitors the different toilet practices of people in the Indian subcontinent and even those coming from other parts of the world. More importantly, it also promotes sanitation, proper waste management, and environmental protection.
2. Museum of Bad Art – Massachussetts, United States
This museum is dedicated to all those art lovers and art practitioners whose works were rejected in the more prominent museums. The museum features purely amateur visual arts. It is well visited and well talked about – proving to the world that indeed, art is really for everyone.
1. Icelandic Phallological Museum – Reykjavik, Iceland
The strangest museum on Earth is actually a celebration of human male genitalia! Opened in 1997, it featured an exhibit of the male genitalia and the other parts of the male reproductive system. So, anyone here who wants to visit this museum?
