Top 5 Museums You Might Not Want to Visit

Updated on June 4, 2012

Which Museum?

Visiting a museum is not for everyone .I suppose you either love them or hate them. Many people can spend all day looking around History Museums ,Art Museums,Science museums and War Museums . Most museums are free, or charge very little for entry.So some of these places offer a rewarding and cheap form of entertainment.

Here I have found five museums that are a little different from the mainstream museums.Obviously some people would find these odd museums interesting , would you like to pay them a visit or not!
