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.

I wanted to find a museum with a beautiful name and I think I found it with the Museum of Enduring Beauty in Melaka, Malaysia. Beautification started in the Medieval  Ages and continues to this day. The museum was created in 1996 to bring “awareness of the different  viewpoints held by different cultures and different periods of time on  what constitutes ‘beauty’”. The beautiful concepts include skin tattooing,  piercing, neck and lip stretching, head molding and foot binding. Unfortunately, American obsessions like botox, fake nails and breast implants didn’t make the cut.
