If you’ve watched too much of Cannibal or Dexter and are not scared at all out of the museums listed so far, then you should definitely check out the Meguro Parasitological Museum in Meguro, Japan. The only museum in existence dedicated to the nasty parasites, it opened its doors in 1953 and has scared and paranoid its visitors with some of the most insane parasites. Having more than 45,000 items in its collection the museum usually displays only about 300 at time. From the preserved bodies of animals ravaged by parasitic invasion, to the real 8.8 meter-long tapeworm removed from a living human, this horrifying nightmare-inducing museums is definitely a must see!
Containing over 8,000 mummies, the Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo, Italy is one of the biggest burial grounds found in the world. Dating back to the 16th century, the now-turned-museum catacombs, are found beneath a monastery’s original cemetery. Hanging off the walls, all dressed in different clothes depending on their social status when they were alive, the mummies are truly frightening and will give every visitor an eerie morbid feeling.
