America's Strangest Museums

Strangest Museums: Museum of Death

Michael Gluckman

Museum of Death, Los Angeles

Death. We all have to face it one day, so why not explore it while we’re alive? That’s the philosophy of museum owners James Healy and Cathee Shultz. Not for the faint of heart, the self-guided tour begins with serial killer artwork (the world’s largest collection) and memorabilia, including a vomit-stained shirt one killer wore when he was electrocuted. Other creepy artifacts include Marilyn Monroe’s morgue photo, a Heaven’s Gate mass suicide exhibit, Liberace’s taxidermied cat, and the real severed head of Henri Landru (a late-19th-century Parisian serial killer). museumofdeath.net
