National Museum of Pasta Foods, Rome, Italy

It might come as a surprise to many of you that the National Museum of Pasta Foods is found in Rome and not Olive Garden. Located in the Palazzo Skanderbeg, the museum’s eleven rooms cover the history of pasta with exhibits on production, machinery, technologies, nutritional information, ancient and modern...

Pencil Museum in Keswick, UK

People may not write things down with pencil and paper anymore. But that shouldn’t stop you from visiting the Pencil Museum in Keswick, UK. It’s actually pretty good.

Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky

There’s nothing I find scarier than a room full of ventriloquist dummies. So of course this means I won’t be visiting the Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky (if it is still open…this is subject to debate). It was founded by an amateur ventriloquist named William Shakespeare Berger and...

Explorers Club in Manhattan

I’ve just read back-to-back books about Mount Everest, so let’s just say the topic of exploration is floating around inside my brain right now. Did you know there is an Explorers Club in Manhattan? Located in an old mansion on East 70th Street, the organization was originally founded in 1904...

The Pirate Soul Museum, Florida

I thought photographs steal your soul, but apparently pirates do as well. The Pirate Soul Museum has the largest and most authentic collection of pirate artifacts EVER! The museum was originally located in Key West, but like a true pirate, the unburied treasures moved to St. Augustine in 2010. In...

Viennese Clock Museum – Uhrenmuseum, Austria

We’ve covered clocks once before and of course lots and lots of booze (the mini bottle museum is my particular favourite), but unfortunately there isn’t a museum out there that has timepieces made of liquor or alcoholic glittery balls. Someone needs to make this happen. I guess we will just...

Ukiyo-e Small Museum, Japan

Ukiyo-e Small Museum, Japan

I’m sure this sign has gone viral meaning I’m not the first person to post a photo of it, and I probably won’t be the last. The Ukiyo-e Small Museum is open whenever the owner feels like it. What is ukiyo-e, you ask? It literally means “pictures of the floating...

Museum of Funeral Customs

Postcard from the Museum of Funeral Customs: “The practice of preparing the body at a funeral home’s embalming room and conducting funeral service there, rather than at the home, became more popular starting in the 1920s. The Museum of Funeral Customs is located at 1440 Monument Avenue, next to Abraham...
