Tired of your everyday art , science and history museums? Well, there is a lot more out there than just those. I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite “attractions” around the world. Keep in mind, a lot of these museums started from someone’s hording habit or obsession – but they are all incredibly unique. These are definitely being added to my travel guide.
Where: Hamburg, Germany
What: A museum dedicated to the chemical substances concealed in our food.

Who remembers the Pencil Nexus for the world’s most fun dadcation?
