23 Stories From The Museum – From Stupid Visitors To Amazing Children!

| Right | May 18, 2020

Dear readers,

It’s international museum day! Museums can be amazing places of learning, adventure, and fantastic days out for the whole family. If you can think of a subject, there is likely a museum dedicated to it, from a dog collar museum in England, a Tap Water museum in Beijing, and even a museum of “Bad Art” in Massachusetts! One thing they all have in common, are visitors, and some of them can fight to remain ignorant no matter how informative the exhibits!

Gathered here for your amusement and bemusement, is a fine collection of 23 stories from the Not Always Right museum archives, showcasing why museums need to exist in the first place, to educate the idiots!

When Reality Is An Iceberg – They recovered his body from the bottom of the ocean.

Have Customer, Will Poke – Why museums can’t have nice things.

Tall Tail Tales – It was either tall tails or a whale of a tale, but either way, the punny title is not the most painful part of this story.
