Fermented herring, stinky tofu and maggot-infested cheese have more in common than an ability to raise eyebrows and offend noses. They're delicacies on exhibit at Sweden's Disgusting Food Museum, a Malmö-based attraction that celebrates oft-maligned fare.
The Disgusting Food Museum opened in November 2018 as a way to teach visitors about unfamiliar foods across cultures. Some of the more unusual dishes, from Peru's roasted guinea pig to the aphrodisiac bull penis, may sound a bit unappetizing. But the museum hopes visitors will "explore the world of food and challenge their notions of what is and what isn't edible," according to its website. Exhibit experiences are nothing if not sensory; visitors can admire, touch, smell and even taste the museum's cuisine, with a lineup of regular and rotating exhibits to keep things interesting.
