21 Most Unconventional Museums in Europe

The Louvre, the British Museum, the Smithsonian – all these names certainly inspire reverence and fascination. The great museums of history, art, and natural sciences are cultural gold, but what do you call those that highlight sausages, toilet seats, or mini glass bottles? Cultural platinum! Here are 21 European museums that feature some unconventional exhibitions.

1. Currywurst Museum, Berlin, Germany

You can’t visit Berlin without tasting – at least once – the famous currywurst. Germans are so in love with this traditional specialty that they’ve dedicated an entire 1,100 square metre museum to it. How cool is that?

Together with the more conservative Brandenburger Tor, Reichstag and the mighty Berlin Wall, the currywurst is, without any doubt, a cultural and historical symbol of the capital.

The Currywurst Museum teaches you everything you can possibly know about this prestigious street food dish. You can listen to songs about it, smell the spices that give its unique flavor and follow its history in the most interactive and colorful way.

2. Mini Bottle Gallery, Oslo, Norway

This place is the only one in the world where you’ll have the chance to see countless, differently shaped and colored mini bottles, gathered under one single roof.

Oslo features the Globe’s largest collection of this kind: 53,000 tiny bottles, exhibited in no less than 50 creative installations.

3. Frietmuseum, Bruges, Belgium

If you wanna know more about the history of the famous French fries, be sure to check out a museum dedicated entirely to this amazing dish. Located in the charming town of Bruges, Frietmuseum will give you the opportunity to learn not only about the French fries, but also about the plethora of sauces they can be dipped into. And, if you get hungry, you can even have a delicious meal inside the museum.
