Do museums bore you?

Tired of cruising the graveyards of ugly old paintings, headless statues, and bits of broken crockery? (Don't tell me I'm a philistine; I know.) Let's go see some freaky stuff. How about a toilet seat museum? A phallological museum, aka a penis museum? Just what the world was waiting for (and yes, there is a gift shop). Check out this link:
