Top 10 Must-See Museums

1 2

Museums are either created to preserve certain artifacts or to enhance the knowledge of the rest of the world. However, the following are quite unusual and makes one wonder why they exist at all.

 

1. Museum of Jurassic Technology

This museum says that it showcases certain relics that go back to the Lower Jurassic period. It is unusual because the Jurassic period came to an end millions of years ago when humans did not exist. If humans were not around, who operated this ‘Jurassic technology”? The display of artifacts is quite weird and you will walk out more puzzled than ever.

 

2. British Lawnmower Museum

The museum exhibits about 400 antique lawnmowers as well as those that never entered the market. One interesting piece is the 1921 Blade which was basically powered by solar energy and was extremely fast. The artifacts belong to the Edwardian and Victorian era and the main aim of this odd museum is to keep the ‘engineering Heritage’ of England alive.

 

3. Kansas Barbed Wire Museum

This museum hopes to give life to that part of American history which is unofficially known as the Devil’s Rope. If you visit, you will be lucky enough to see about 2000 varieties of barbed wire as well as those samples that were manufactured till 1890. The museum includes a Barbed Wire Hall of Fame and a research library. Why one would care about barbed wire, is the question.

4. Glore Psychiatric Museum

This museum exhibits the psychiatric treatment history through the years. It does so with the help of reproductions, dioramas and models. One visit to this museum and you will understand that psychiatrics used methods like burning, blistering and public humiliation as a part of their treatment. The most interesting artifact is the ‘things-that-patients-swallowed’.

 

5. The Creation Museum

This museum stretches across 60,000 square feet of land and its main purpose is to give importance to young Earth creationism. The museum describes how the universe was created, how mankind was formed and how it will eventually die.
