2.  Mutter Museum












Ever heard of a medical museum? Well, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has got one – the Mutter Museum. This strange place appears to be the secret lab of Dr. Frankenstein. Its shelves can boast about a colon that contained nearly 40 pounds of human faeces and President Grover’s malignant tumor recovered from his hard palate

3. Museum of Anatomy








This museum is guaranteed to send cold chills up your spine. The Museum of Anatomy contains skinned bodies of children, executed criminals and skulls of psychiatric patients.

Having a collection of more than 400 wax figures, the museum contains gruesome images of the French revolution and the infamous wax head of the last King of France.

5. Lombroso’s Museum of Criminal Anthropology
