These Odd Museums from around the World Will Astound You!


Plastinarium, Guben, Germany

After 39 years of dissection, chemistry, and medicine, Gunther von Hagens honed his plastination skills by using polymers used to preserve animal and human tissue. Visitors receive a history lesson in anatomy, witness the graphic process of plastination and a showroom with humans and animals in creative poses. The Center supplies the displays for traveling Body Worlds exhibitions, and have been the subject of ethical debates on post-mortem body procurements and respectful handling of remains.

The Mummy Museum, Guanajuato, Mexico

In a small mining town of Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage site, hundreds of bodies were buried in the crypts of the Santa Paula Pantheon sometime during the middle of the 19th century. If families failed to pay the town burial tax, the bodies were exhumed. Due to the region’s unique climactic factors the bodies were naturally mummified. The ghoulish corpses, including infants, are displayed at the Mummy Museum.
