Museum of Funeral Carriages

Location: Barcelona, Spain

The Museum of Funeral Carriages, also known more commonly by its Catalan name, Museu de Carrosses Funebres, is heralded as one of Barcelona's most bizarre sites. The museum is relatively self-explanatory, chronicling late 18th to mid-20th century funeral customs. Not only does the museum give visitors an accurate description of the dead's transportation, but it also includes mummies in clothing from the specific time periods. Death is a universal part of life, but this particular museum gives visitors real insight into the history and customs behind after-life rituals in Barcelona.
