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.
