While many folks try to keep anything that creeps, crawls, or flies out of their lives, the Audubon Insectarium is working to bring visitors eye to eye with the creepy and crawly. Thousands of mounted specimens and live insects make up the collection of interactive exhibits that are housed in the largest freestanding museum of its kind in the United States. Audubon Insectarium exhibits include Butterflies in Flight which provides visitors with an up-close learning experience in a free-flying Japanese Garden style exhibit, Life Underground which shrinks visitors to the size of our six-legged friends with oversized props and animatronic insects, and the Cooking Show and Cultural Café which gives everyone the chance to experience the joy of cooking with insects!

The brainchild of J. D. Healy and Catherine Shultz, The Museum of Death was first opened in San Diego in 1995. Having grown in popularity it was later moved to Hollywood Boulevard and a second one of its kind was opened in New Orleans. Since then it has gone on to become home to the largest collection of death themed exhibits. Found here are a controversial collection of severed heads, photos of crime scenes, autopsy instruments, execution devices, taxidermied pets and several other eerie exhibits. If you can stomach graphic and gory displays do visit this museum.
