Bizarre Museums Around The World

By  | 

Looking for a museum that’s a little bit unique? Here are a few of the world’s most bizarre museums for those that are bored of the same old exhibitions.

Cancun Underwater Museum

Cancun Underwater Museum contains over 500 sculptures, all of which are located under the sea. It’s the biggest underwater museum in the world and a popular attraction for those in the Cancun area. You’ll need to either get your flippers on or take a glass bottomed boat tour in order to see exhibits. On top of the statues, there could be a chance of seeing exotic marine wildlife ranging from sea turtles to stingrays.

Sulabh International Museum of Toilets

This New Delhi museum is dedicated entirely to toilets and features models collected from all around the world ranging from old to new. Its curator, Dr. Pathak, has been on a mission to introduce more toilets to India – half of homes in India are thought to still not contain a toilet. Using proceeds from the museum, Dr. Pathak has been building more public toilets around India so that more everyday people have access. It’s a funny museum with a serious cause.

Museum of Illusions

Museum of Bad Art
