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.

Because I’m a poor asshole, I usually cannot afford to go to a hair salon. I end up badly cutting my hair into uneven bangs or have my mom (a beauty school dropout) give me a trim. But if I lived in Le Havre, France and was a man I would totally go to Le Salon des Navigateurs where 76 year old barbershop owner, Daniel LeCompte, dresses as a sailor and curates a mini-museum dedicated to hairdressing techniques. The Sailors’ Salon, opened in 1960 in the Saint-François neighborhood of city, has a collection of objects related to sailing history (of course) and a hair-raising accumulation of barbershop objects and mementoes from LeCompte’s father, who also happened to be a hairdresser. Customers don’t seem to mind getting a haircut while sitting next to a mannequin, so props to them! And don’t worry…you don’t need to be a man with a desperate need for a shave or cut, LeCompte and his wife welcome all visitors and will show you around their museum for FREE!!! This is a perfect time for an awful hairdressers’ pun - “going to this museum is like a hairway to heaven.”
