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.

Oh, and sorry - I DO NOT FOLLOW BACK!

Due to China’s internet censorship policies, I’m not sure if this next museum shows up in any Google searches over there. Next time you have a fit of paranoia, remember the size of China’s Internet Police is rumored at more than 30,000 (or the same number of people who die in motor vehicle traffic-related deaths every year). Anyway, China’s first  (and only) Museum of Sex opened in 1999. The museum’s founder Dr. Liu Dalin, or the Dr. Ruth of China, completed a national survey on sex over twenty years ago. His findings have been called “The Chinese Kinsey Report”. So he’s obviously an expert. Or just a creep. Located fifty miles outside of Shanghai (because the city government drove them out of town, those pervs), the exhibits cover nine thousand years of people doing it and are divided into sections with names like “Unusual Sexual Behavior” and “Sex in Primitive Society”. It starts with rudimentary dildos (a label states that lesbians used them) and many ceramics in phallic form and ends with a contemporary poster of two muscular guys, shirtless and in tight jeans, with the caption “The Gays” (homosexuality was classified as a psychological disorder in the country as recently as 2001). Oh, and there is also an interesting artwork titled "The Apple and the Snake" (NSFW). And before you leave, don’t forget to check out the statue garden full of giant penises while meditating in the tea pavilion. Thank you and have a nice day.
