This museum puts the fun in funeral.Gabriela Izquierdo
If you've ever been to Houston, you've probably heard about all the great museums the city has since the Museum District is one of Houston's biggest tourist attractions. However, you can find tons of other great educations spots outside of the District, including one of Houston's most unique and spooky museums, which is one dedicated to funerals!
The National Museum of Funeral History is a morbidly fascinating museum full of info and cool exhibits all about funerals! You can find tons of really fascinating displays like mummies and learn about the history of embalming.
Or learn about Victorian mourning rituals to include "mourning jewelry" made out of actual dead people's hair.
The museum also happens to be America's largest collection of funeral items. This comes at no surprise because we can't imagine there being many other funeral history museums out there!
They have plenty of fascinating exhibits such as the history of cremation, celebrating the lives and deaths of the popes (which is Vatican-endorsed!), a Dia de Los Muertos exhibit, and a lot more interesting exhibits.
Tickets to see the biggest collection of all things funeral including hearses, mourning jewelry, and of course, many different kinds of coffins are reasonably priced at only $10.
Texas is full of spooky places, so after visiting the museum the most epic way to keep the spook-factor going is to hit up a few of these Texas abandoned ghost towns and see if you can spot something supernatural.
Houston isn't the only Texas town that is home to an odd museum because of course, Austin is home to a spooky museum of weird things that definitely lives up to the "Keep Austin Weird" vibe.
