World’s Scariest Museums

If you are interested in discovering new things or seeking for macabre around the world, it is amazing to visit some unique museums around the world such as House on the Rock, New Haven Ventriloquist, Catacombs of Palermo, Catacombs of Palermo and London Dungeon.

House on the Rock

The House on the Rock in Deer Shelter Rock, Wisconsin opened to the whole public in 1959. The house is described as “complex of architecturally unique rooms, streets, gardens and shops designed by Alex Jordan, Jr.” The house seems normal enough at first when visitors enter the Gate House. Then, the “ultimate 1970s bachelor pad” switches to rot in dark dusty rooms. Inside the house contains amazing displays and unfathomable collections including an early twentieth century American Town and a 200-foot model of a sea monster. The scary sights and sounds like a symphony written in hell stimulate a sense of real version of Tim Burton movie.

 

New Haven Ventriloquist Museum

New Haven Ventriloquist Museum is a scary place for most people. The unique museum contains nothing but artificial humanoid figures with old ventriloquist’s dummies. Coming to the museum, you have to stand in the stages looking at all artificial humanoid figures sitting in each seat.

Glore Psychiatric Museum

Coming to Glore Psychiatric Museum, you will attain to awful things swallowed by people. The museum also dedicates the history of such breathing mental treatments like electroshock and lobotomies. Otherwise, you can see instruments for bleeding patients and process of a psychosurgical operation.

 

London Dungeon

Macabre torture devices from the Medieval Age are exactly what you can find at London Dungeon. The horror museum which opened in 1975 is based on historical murders and executions. Characters dressed in gruesome costume wait in the dark and jump out at unsuspecting tourists any time.

 

Catacombs of Palermo

Catacombs of Palermo – a museum of death – was not intended to be a museum. That’s the reason why you can view hundreds of real corpses deep in the bowels of the Capuchin monastery. Monks and local people in community were hanged along the walls in clothes after their death. Dead bodies were put in the catacombs first in the end of 16th century and the latest one in the 1920s.
