The Museum of Death is an interesting one. It was created to fill the void of death education in the USA, offering a self-guided tour lasting around 60 minutes, but if you can stomach it, you can stay longer.
We have to say Family Days Out visited the Museum of Death, and take caution! Whilst it's an all-ages museum (as death affects everyone), it's certainly not suitable for non-teens, and even then make sure they have a strong stomach for some of the exhibits!
The exhibits within the Museum of Death begin fairly top level when it comes to it's content. You can see skeletons of small animals, just as you would in a natural history museum, through to letters and artwork of serial killers (they have the world's largest collection of serial killer artwork!), and news clippings from notable moments in history.
Exhibits also show Manson Family memorabilia, pet taxidermy and even mortician and coroners instruments.
The further back you get into the museum, the more graphic the content. Parents should check out the exhibits prior to kids looking at them, so you can make sure you are approving of what they see first.
We don't recommend any children see the very last section of the museum as it's VERY graphic!
So you've been warned, but every family has their own tastes and educational values, so take caution and if this is up your alley - good luck!
