Death is life's only certainty, so J. D. Healy and Catherine Shultz did the only logical thing: they built a museum commemorating the end of life. The pair founded the Museum of Death in the late '90s, and it has locations in both Los Angeles and New Orleans. What can you see at the Museum of Death? The short answer is creepy stuff. From crime scene evidence to portraits done by serial killers, visiting the Museum of Death is a truly unsettling experience. 

Weird attractions at the Museum of Death are not actually meant to spook visitors. The space is about death, not horror, and is intended to educate the public about a variety of issues surrounding death, funerals, and the afterlife. But that doesn't mean the Museum of Death is for the faint of heart. While inducing fear is not the ultimate goal, most people leave the museum as shaken as they are enlightened. If you dare, stop by two of the country's strangest museums to peruse exhibits and displays that explore everyone's ultimate fate.
