Every city has a unique cultural heritage exemplified through its museums. New York City contains some of the best in the world--A visit to the world renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art gives you access to greats like Picasso and Rembrandt. But not all museum's attract cultural art lovers--Everyone's (not so) favorite sudo-meat SPAM has a 1700 square foot area dedicated to it in Minnesota and New Delhi, India is home to the world of toilets at the Sulabh International Toilet Museum.
From the wild to the wacky and always straight up weird, here's our list of five weird museums around the world:
The toilet museum in New Delhi, India is a peculiar historic museum that will educate you on everything you have ever needed to know about the toilet from exhibitions of historic toilets to "provide information to researchers about the design, materials, and technologies adopted in the past and those in use in the contemporary world," says the museum's website.
Steaming bowls of delicious, savory broth and noodles are a mainstay in the Japanese diet. That's why the Shin Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum in Yokohama is an ode to all things ramen. The museum was established in 1994 and is complete with a ramen restaurant mall where you can slurp to your heart's content and a replica of a section of Tokyo from the year 1958 as well as a souvenir shop and exhibitions of ramen culture and history.
For the penis obsessed, now tourists can view over 215 penises and penis parts at this Iceland museum. The website says, "The Icelandic Phallological Museum contains a collection of more than two hundred and fifteen penises and penile parts belonging to almost all the land and sea mammals that can be found in Iceland."
With 16,500 square feet dedicated to the savory pork product, the SPAM Museum in Austin, Minnesota is home to historic SPAM artifacts and a SPAM store where you can stock up on the canned meat.
