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!

Top Five Unusual Museums

The Dog Collar Museum. Leeds Castle Maidstone, Kent, United Kingdom.

This museum is housed in the Gate Tower of the castle. Here you will find medieval and ornamental dog collars spanning five centuries.One of the world's most unusual collections,there are numerous iron collars bristling with fearsome spikes.These were designed for dogs used in hunting and bull-and bear- baiting.
