9. Morbid Anatomy Museum

Walk into Joanna Ebensten’s Morbid Anatomy Museum in Gowanus, Brooklyn to see cadavers and mortuary photographs and also to learn about humans’ changing attitude towards death through the ages.  The sobering collection inclues mummified, pickled, fossilized and waxed specimens that are sure to either traumatize or desensitize you but in exchange for valuable anatomical knowledge.
