National Museum of Funeral History


'Any day above ground is a good one.' That's the trademark of the National Museum of Funeral History. If you've ever wanted to see a coffin collection that includes a casket made of money, literally, or one that's crab-shaped, now's your chance. Exhibits cover embalming, famous memorials and historical hearses. Halloween would seem a good time to check out the Day of the Dead festival room.
