Nothing better than a drink and a good book

A weird museum in Brooklyn by the name of the Morbid Anatomy Museum is an interesting expension of the library that has the same name,which has been making artifacts, curiosities and books available to the public. Hosting events classes and other things about the wonderful world of morbidity and death showcased in the taxidermy in, let´s called it unusual,poses of animal carcasses. The Museum is a non-profit organization to showcase to the public the important area of death, featuring a large exhibition space and drawing from private collections of the things in private hands that are the most bizarre to be found and featured. You can also find a library to research on the premises and no museum would be complete without a gift shop.
