Museums Challenged To Share Their Creepiest Objects.

It’s CULTED with your 60-second NEWS BLAST.

With their doors being closed due to the pandemic, last Friday, Yorkshire Museum challenged museums around the world to a #CURATORBATTLE – to share the creepiest objects in their collections. The tweet has since gone viral and our feeds have been flooded with everything from creepy dolls, to severed legs.

We’ve made a list of the weirdest objects that might just be enough to make you glad you’re staying home!

First up, The National Museum of Scotland shared this terrifying fish-tailed monkey mermaid that will 100% be in our nightmares tonight.

Speaking of nightmares, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! posted this horrifying snap of the severed head of Peter Kurten, supposedly a real-life vampire from Dusseldorf! We really could have gone without seeing this one!

And this very on-trend plague mask from The German Historical Museum is also something we’d rather forget.

But the creepiest item of all comes from the toy museum of Penshurst Place. They shared a pic of this bear that drinks from its cup when you pop in a 2 pence piece… whilst also staring into your soul.

So guys, after seeing this will you be sleeping tonight?
