15 of the World's Weirdest Museums

Malaysia, in particular, the historical city of Melaka is under the radar again. This time, one of her museums, is recognised by CNN.com as Top 15 of the weirdest museums in the world. The museum was first called People's Museum, before being renamed to Museum of Enduring Beauty.

I, myself, have yet to visit this museum. Insya Allah, will include it in my itinerary for my incoming homecoming trip.

Our advice on beauty? Just brush your hair and smile.

Good hair day? On the third floor of the People's Museum in Malaysia is a monument to the extremes people will go to feel pretty, oh so pretty.

The records go back to the very beginnings of human history, revealing some of the outrageous concepts of beauty people will conform to: bound feet, insertion of round disks into their mouths, molding heads into oval shapes and much more.

Bring your own mirror; you'll feel a lot better about your own appearance after leaving this gallery of "real beauty."

Don't Miss: A display of how several tribes elongate the neck with brass rings or stretch ear lobes with plates. Take an aspirin after your look.
