Strangest TOURIST Attractions In The World

Strangest TOURIST Attractions In The World


It is generally things that are out of the
ordinary that remain in our memories when we take a walk down memory lane. So, here is a list of some of the most unique
tourist attractions that you can visit for awesome memories! 13. Gum Wall. Sometimes, you just have to respect the genius
of some people. We have all battled against the gum sticking
to our walls at one point or the other and know how irritating it is. But genius is making an art piece out of sticking
gum on to walls! That is exactly what the market Theatre gum
wall in Seattle, US is! It has the dubious distinction of being the
germiest tourist attraction in the world as it has been collecting gums and the resulting
germs for over 2 decades! It all started when the theatre going crowd
would stick their gum on the wall while they waited. Although initially it was cleaned regularly,
someone finally decided to just embrace the gum and label it as a tourist attraction! A true stroke of genius! 12. Toilet Seat Museu. We are very sure that when sit every morning
on the commode waiting for a smooth bowel movement, you had no idea that you are sitting
on a potential piece of art. After all, it is a toilet seat, right? But as it turns out, a retired plumber decided
to turn these things into artwork! The amazing, if a little icky, collection
started out in his garage and it has now become a museum in its own right! The toilet seat museum is actually a big attraction
for tourists and they can even get their names engraved on a seat if they bring it with them. So the next time you take a dump, be aware
that it is probably a work of art that you are sitting on! 11. Medieval Crime Museum. I think all of us would agree that the medieval
times were especially cruel times. The crimes and their punishments were so horrific
that we cannot even imagine them today. But if you would like a taste you can visit
the medieval crime museum in Germany. There are some really gruesome exhibits starting
from some of the really cruel torture devices! You can see a cage for bakers who made bad
smelling bread, a shame flute for bad musicians and execution instruments like the wheel! They are enough to stir your imagination and
let you know why the medieval was not a good time to be alive! Just be thankful that you are only seeing
these devices in a museum and not in real life! 10. Instant Ramen Noodles. So we all love instant ramen. They are an absolute life saver and there
is no one on Earth who would deny that! So, if you ever got a chance to visit a museum
dedicated to Ramen, you wouldn’t miss it right? In Osaka, Japan, there is the Momofuku Ando
Instant Ramen museum where you can find pretty everything there is to find about Ramen noodles
and they also have a kitchen where you can make your own cup! Apart from that, you can also explore pretty
much any kind of Ramen ever made because they have a gallery where all of them are displayed! 9. Valle De La Prehistoria. One of the most striking things that we know
about is the extinction of the Dinosaurs. How could creatures who were so big and strong
be wiped out entirely? That we may not be able to answer but there
is a place in Cuba where you can pretty much get a taste of what life would have been in
the times of the Dinosaurs. The Valle de la prehistoria is basically a
park with many life size prehistoric creatures and dinosaurs feature pretty much highly in
the park. Another very interesting fact about this park
is that the structures were built by the inmates from a nearby prison! These structures spread over 11 hectares and
there are 200 such life sized structures ranging from dinosaurs to even prehistoric man! 8. Karni Mata Temple. Generally when you think of religious places,
you would think that you would get in and feel all pious and religious. Disgust is something that you will certainly
not expect to feel inside, but at the Karni Mata temple in India, it is something that
you will probably not be able to avoid feeling. The reason is that there are a huge number
of rats in the temple, and they are not something to be shooed away either because they are
considered holy! In fact, if you accidentally stomp on a rat
and kill it, you will have to replace it with a gold one! And God forbid if you kill them with intent! The rats are believed to be re-incarnations
of the ancestors of the locals and there are approximately 25,000 rats that live here. So, if rodents are not really your thing,
you would want to avoid this temple like the plague! 7. Isla de las Muneca. If you think that dolls are somewhat creepy,
you should probably schedule a visit to the Isla de las Munecas in Mexico to get rid of
all your doubts. And no, that does not mean you will think
they are all right, but you will know for sure that they are creepy! The Isla de las Munecas is basically a place
where you will see an exhibition of many dolls in various states of disrepair. The story goes that when a girl drowned in
a nearby river, a man collected discarded dolls and placed them there to appease the
spirit of the girl. Unfortunately though, the spirit probably
was not appeased and he met the same fate as the girl! The locals though kept up the tradition of
collecting discarded dolls and when you do visit the Isla de la Munecas, you will probably
get nightmares for days thinking that one of these dolls is coming for a visit! 6. Phallus Museum. Most of us are proud of of our junk but it
is definitely not something that we would want to put on display right? Except for a few deranged ones, we are sure! But then someone decided that penises are
actually very important and decided to build a museum to them! The Iceland Phallus museum is just that and
it is more aptly called penis museum by many. There are over 200 specimens of penises here
and apparently every mammal that is found in Iceland has their penises displayed here! Crazy right? And there are even some human samples which
were donated voluntarily! The museum is not a pretty sight by any stretch
of imagination though unless penis in a jar tickles your fantasy! 5. Larry the Lobster. Yes, we know that the name sounds like something
which belongs to someone with connections in the mafia. But actually Larry the lobster is just that. A lobster. Or at least, a sculpture of a lobster. He is known as Larry the big lobster by the
locals and for good reason. Larry is 56 feet tall and was installed in
1979 to promote the region’s sea food, wine, cheese and timber industries. This is in fact a very interesting structure
and there is also a tourist complex at its base along with a restaurant and a gift shop. And no prizes for guessing what the specialty
food in the restaurant would be! 4. Prada in the Desert. Now we all know that Prada is not something
that one can buy without saving up for some time unless you are extremely rich. And if so, the desert would probably be the
last place where you will have customers lining up! So why on Earth would someone open up a Prada
store in the desert? Apparently because Texas did not have a Prada
showroom so they decided to open one on an empty stretch of road about 150 miles from
El Paso in Texas! But if this sounds interesting and you intend
to shop here, you are out of luck. The store is permanently locked up even though
it displays about 20 shoes and 6 purses! Bizarre indeed! 3. Inveraray Jail. So when it comes to experiencing a slice of
life from the past, the best place to do so is in the actual location itself. And if you ever wonder what life was like
for the inmates of the past, you can visit the Inveraray jail in Scotland. The prison dates back to 1820 and has now
been converted into an experience centre. So even without committing a crime you can
get a jail experience if you like. With characters dressed in authentic attire,
you can experience early jail life with its various punishments and justice systems like
branding with hot iron, public whippings and thumbscrews! And you can even get thrown in jail so that
you can actually get a feel of what it is like to feel like a prisoner! 2. Petrifying Well, England. Witches generally gain a scary reputation
quite quickly and in the case of Mother Shipton, it was doubly so because she actually made
a lot of accurate prediction, including that of the Great fire of London. And her lair was a cave inside which there
was a petrifying well, which was known for its magical properties. Some people claimed that the water had healing
powers, while others said that it would turn you into rock. And while all of that has been demystified
by science today, it still makes the petrifying well a very interesting place to visit. Especially because the Brits have tied everyday
objects in the water which have been turned to stone over time! 1. Gnome Reserve. So of all the mythical creatures that we want
to interact with in real life, gnomes are probably the ones most in demand. That is why there is an actual gnome reserve
in Devon, England! It is a one of its kind exhibition and there
are over 1000 gnomes and pixie structures spread over an area of 4 acres. These little guys can be seen in various poses
and moods like playing, cooking, relaxing, smoking and many others! There are also 250 species of labelled wildflowers
here to build the perfect setting for the gnomes! There is also a museum which holds some of
the more ancient gnomes! And if you end up feeling out of place here,
you can use the gnome hats and fishing rods to blend in! Do you ever look out for bizarre things to
explore when you travel? If so, let us know about some of the strange
tourist exhibitions you have come across in the comments below and do remember to subscribe
