If you think that museum can only be historical artifacts or art and culture, then you may need to rethink your perspective. To our amazement, a new museum is going to open up in Sweden that will weirdly showcase some of the most disgusting foods from around the world. From roasted guinea pig to the stinkiest fruit, ‘Disgusting Food Museum’ in Sweden is undoubtedly the world's first museum (probably last also) that will feature 80 of the world’s nastiest food that you definitely would never have heard of.
With the motive to ‘invite people to explore the most challenging food around the world in their notion, Sweden’s Disgusting Food Museum also aims to change our ideas of ‘disgust’ in order to help us embrace the sustainable food in future.
The official website of the museum states that “while disgust is one of the six fundamental human emotions, there can be times when the foods that we may find disgusting are actually not. Similarly, what is delicious to one person can be revolting to another”.
Maggot cheese from Sardinia, well-aged Shark from Iceland and a raw bull’s penis, Museum is going to feature unexpected and extraordinarily exotic food from across the globe. The museum is the brainchild of Dr Samuel West, who is the man behind the immensely popular Museum of Failure in Helsingborg, Sweden. The museum is all set to open on October 31 in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest country, to ‘disgust’ the world. However, it is scheduled to be open only for three months until the end of January 2019.
Certainly, it is the name ‘Disgusting Food Museum’ that will entice elements of surprise and interest among the visitors.
