Bangkok’s Museum of Forensic Medicine

The Museum of Forensic Medicine, as evident by its very name, may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But, if you are traveling through Bangkok and tired of all the temples and Buddhas, you might want to consider popping in to Siriraj Hospital to check out one of the most bizarre museums on this planet.

Journalist Will Storr recently spiced up his Thailand holiday by doing just that. He left behind the wondrous glories of Bangkok and slipped into the horrific world of elephantiasis testicles, severed heads, Cyclops babies, murder weapons, blood-stained clothing, hanged corpses, and dozens of other nightmare-inducing bits of flesh and tissue. Ugh.

Me? I think I’ll stick to the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of southern Thailand where the dreams that come at night are far more pleasant.
