Often times, when we think of culture, museum comes to mind because we get to catch up on the culture of a particular place quickly by simply visiting a museum.

You know how they say all fingers are not equal? Apparently, all museums are equally not equal as they are not all built in the same vain. Some do not fall within the usual, normal and conventional style of museums that we're all familiar with and well, I personally love referring to such a weird and quirky.

We've got a good number of these weird museums around the globe. So, here's a list of seven of those weird museums you should know and probably consider visiting if you ever have the opportunity to do that.

1. Museum of Sex, New York, USA.

The Museum of Sex, also known as MoSex, is a sex museum located somewhere in New York.

The Museum opened some time back in 2002 with the intent of preserving the history, evolution, and cultural significance of human sexuality.

The museum hosts temporary exhibitions as well as a permanent collection of over 15,000 artifacts, works of art, photography, costumes, and historical memorabilia —all with the intent of creating an open discourse around sex and sexuality.

2. The Museum of Broken Relationship, Zagreb, Croatia.

This museum evolved "from a travelling exhibition revolving around the concept of failed relationships and their ruins,"

Visitors are usually encouraged to drop artifacts of their own broken relationships such as rings, clothes, Valentine's gift and a whole lot more as "a chance to overcome an emotional collapse."

3. The Museum of Human Disease in Sydney.

This museum pride itself as " the world's only museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms."

So, you don't need to feel so bad with low self-esteem and confidence as an artist while taking a stroll in the museum and discovering just how good you are in the midst of these bad arts.

All the pieces "range from the work of talented artists that have gone awry to works of exuberant, although crude, execution by artists barely in control of the brush."

5. Hair Museum, Avanos, Turkey.

Although, we all avoid to talk about death and funeral because it's kind of a taboo but this museum finds a way to exhibit 13 beautiful funeral carriages and six coaches that were used to transport departed citizens to their eternal resting place.

Sulabh International Museum of Toilets details the history of hygiene and sanitation from 2500 B.C. to present day.

The museum documents the evolution of the toilet through the ages, from the gold-plated toilets of Roman emperors to medieval commodes. And yeah, the museum also hosts a collection of rare toilet poems. Amusing right?

The world is just full of all kinds of things and you'll never know except you explore. So yeah, you should totally consider visiting places like this to know just what the world is made of.
