This Belongs in a Museum

Once called the "Stephen Fry of Museum Blogging," this tumblog, written by a frustrated museologist, is dedicated to the small, random museums and weird attractions of the world. Always informative, usually funny, sometimes offensive.

Bringing you museum-approved grammatical errors and typos since 2010.

A VALENTINE HEART (VEINS AND ARTERIES INCLUDED)

*CHOCOLATE HEARTS, RED ROSES AND TEDDY BEAR EXTRA*

At the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago visitors could walk through a giant replica of the human heart to watch its principal parts work as they do in one’s own body and actually hear it throb. The big walk-through heart had been a popular fixture since 1954, but was replaced with a digital projection in 2009.
