Mystery Park in Switzerland

On the outskirts of Interlaken, a resort town in Switzerland, is Mystery Park, a museum/amusement park dedicated to the great “mysteries” of the world.

Meguro Parasite Museum, Tokyo, Japan

Have a thing for parasites? Well, go visit the world’s only Parasite Museum next time you’re in Tokyo, Japan.
