The Ramen Museum – Yokohama, Japan
This attraction pays homage to college and university students across the globe, not to mention the man who invented their main nutritional source (Ramen). Ramen noodles are one of the least expensive meals you can buy anywhere in the world. This museum is a tribute to the original creator of ramen, Momofuku Ando, and his Cup Noodles legacy.
The museum has exhibits that show guests about noodles from every place on the map, and you’ll be stunned by some of the flavours each different location around the world enjoys. And if that wasn’t enough, you have the chance to taste test some unique flavours you may never come across again.
The Phallus Museum – Reykjavik, Iceland
For travellers into the more bizarre side of things, the Phallus Museum may be right up your alley. Located in the beautiful city of Reykjavik, the Phallus Museum is among the weirdest museums ever created. Simply put it is an entire museum dedicated to collecting ‘specimens’ of every single mammal in the country. So far, the count is up to just over 200 ‘members’ of the museum, with more assumed to follow.

There’s one doll that I guarantee I am not turning my back to — Annabelle. Isla de las Muñecas is home to over 1000 mutilated dolls with a haunted history, but not as haunted as Annabelle's. See #AnnabelleCreation in theaters August 11th to finally learn all about her disturbing beginning. 😱@AnnabelleMovie #ad [link in bio!]
The Island Of Dolls – Mexico City, Mexico
If creepy and scary is your thing, look no further than a visit to the Island of Dolls. This strange tourist attraction is just slightly south of Mexico City and has a very unique story of how it came to be. Julián Santana Barrera was haunted by a young girl who drowned nearby, so he kept placing dolls around to try to appease the evil spirit he believed haunted the place. After Barrera’s death in 2001, his body was reportedly found in the exact spot where the girl’s body was found fifty years before. This uncanny coincidence led to the area becoming a popular tourist attraction where visitors bring dolls of their own. Strange!
Capuchin Catacombs – Palermo, Italy
Further into the creepy trend, the next place that is a must-visit for bizarre tourism is the Capuchin Catacombs. These catacombs are stocked full of fully-preserved mummies all dressed in their Sunday best, some are even found posing. Unbelievably, there are over 8000 of these dead bodies to see! This particular tourist attraction is definitely not for the entire family, but well worth a visit if you are in the area.
The Sewer Museum – Paris, France
This destination, as unappealing as it sounds, is really something you can get involved in as it feels like you are being taken back in time. The Sewer Museum is NOT a homage to plumbing, it’s an homage to the old life when the city of Paris had an entire population who lived and worked below ground, hidden in the sewers. For a real eye opener to see what life was like back then, add this to your bizarre tourism bucket list.
