If you wanted a museum with a difference, then you have come to the right place! The Museum of Death is well, certainly an experience you won't be forgetting in a long time!
This fascinating, intriguing and unusual museum was created back in 1995, in a bid to fill the void of death education in the country. After all, it's not exactly a subject you learn in school, is it?
Evolving from the controversial Rita Dean art gallery, the Museum of Death was actually first located in a mortuary. Yes, you heard that right! Not the strangest thing you will learn with a visit, either!
Today, this museum is home to the world's largest collection of serial killer artwork, antique funeral ephermera, coroner and mortician instruments, and even pet taxidermy!
You can come face to face with memorabilia from the Mason family themselves, and even see crime scene photographs! The museum is open to all ages, but as we're sure you can imagine, the subject matter is such that it's recommended for mature audiences only (kids, you can't go in without an adult!)
The museum is explored through self-guided tours, and these take around 45 minutes to an hour, but of course, if you're really fascinated, it will take a lot longer!
Are you ready to explore a museum that some may call, a dead giveaway for that family day out? Sorry, we just had to!
The Museum of Death is open to the living, so join them!
