Features
Quirky/offbeat

New Orleans is a city that addresses death with joy as well as mourning. If you're lucky, you'll witness a famous Second Line parade, complete with jazz accompaniment first lamenting, then celebrating, the life of the deceased. This new museum—an offshoot of the original in Los Angeles—fits in quite well, though it edges closer to the gruesome. Exhibits cover everything from death rituals around the world to mortuary tools, to the letters and photos of infamous serial killers. It's not for the faint of heart as some of the subject matter is quite graphic, but it will definitely appeal to the morbidly curious.
