6 Peculiar Museums in the United States

Lizzie Borden Museum, Fall River, Massachusetts

The Fall River Historical Society has a collection of all things related to Lizzie's infamous slaying of her parents -- gruesome crime scene photos, bloodstained linen and clothing, and a hatchet purported to be the murder weapon itself. If that's not enough, tourists can spend the night at the scene of the crime when they stay at the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, which has been faithfully restored to its appearance at the time of the murders.
