We all knew museums had some weird and wonderful exhibits. But nothing could have prepared us for the creepiest objects they have in their stocks. Yikes ...

It started with a "mermaid."

via: Twitter

With eyes that will haunt our dreams.

A popular theme.

via: Twitter

These fake skeletons are the stuff of nightmares.

This one could be worse, though.

via: Twitter

More nightmare-fuel.

This guy looks creepy.

via: Twitter

And to make matters worse, he's haunted, too?

Terrifying ceramics.

via: Twitter

All we can ask is why?

Looks bad in photos.

via: Twitter

Even worse when you know it moves.

What the ...?

via: Twitter

*Throws up*

The costume party from hell.

via: Twitter

We feel sorry for these kids of the past.

Diving?

via: Twitter

Or "freaking out your friends and neighbors?"

Looks horrifying.

via: Twitter

But at least the story behind it is ... even more horrifying.

Why?

via: Twitter

Ever seen a crab claw and though, "that would make an incredible toy?"

We have no words.

via: Twitter

Let's just move on.

Scary in the front ...

via: Twitter

And ... no, wait, scary in the back, too.

The look of pain.

via: Twitter

Hey, he's earned it!

Make sure to store your horrible wax dolls responsibly.

via: Twitter

Or risk this!

We don't even want to ask.

via: Twitter

Ok, fine - why "glory?"

Taxidermy cat = creepy.

via: Twitter

Playing a harp = ten times worse.

This looks pretty horrible.

via: Twitter

But the story behind it is somehow even worse.

Is taxidermy ever non-creepy?

via: Twitter

Not in this instance!

What the...

via: Twitter

These teeth are sending us.

A good luck charm.

via: Twitter

Hmm, we'll do without, thanks.

We have no words.

via: Twitter

Except for "why?"

Fancy scarring your kids for life?

via: Twitter

This is the toy for you!

How about giving bathroom-users a heart attack?

via: Twitter

Might we suggest this towel rail?

Creepy dolls seem all too common.

via: Twitter

Though this one might steal the crown for our least favorite.

Horrific.

via: Twitter

Want to give yourself the full-body creeps? Google "rat king."

Another mermaid!?

via: Twitter

What have we done to deserve this?

Surely this doesn't belong in a museum?

via: Twitter

We're just spitballing here, but how about in the trash instead?

Terrifying.

via: Twitter

... Bite marks?

Another creepy doll ...

via: Twitter

This one looks like it's been beaten up?

Creepy to look at ...

via: Twitter

And with an even creepier backstory!

We're not even sure what this is.

via: Twitter

But we're willing to say we aren't a fan.

A tiny dead bird ...

via: Twitter

Made out of a moth. Why?!

We're scared.

via: Twitter

Wouldn't want to run into this guy on a dark night.

Hotel Overlook anyone?

via: Twitter

NGL, we think this one is pretty cool.

This one, on the other hand.

via: Twitter

Totally gross. Bleurgh!

A ... bone horn?

via: Twitter

Now, this is metal.

Why are teeth so inherently frightening?

via: Twitter

We don't have the answer, but we're as scared as you are.

How to immediately raise suspicion?

via: Twitter

Wear this mask. Job done.

Grim to look at ...

via: Twitter

And even worse once you know what it's for. Nice.

Aww ... a sweet little love token.

via: Twitter

Oh. Never mind.

What's creepier than one creepy doll?

via: Twitter

Try three.

This can't have been a successful advert.

via: Twitter

Surely customers would run in the opposite direction?

Another classic clown pic.

via: Twitter

The explanation makes our blood run cold.

Again - what?

via: Twitter

We're going to need more info on this.

And as for this guy?

via: Twitter

Safe to say we would not be stopping by.

Not only is this scary ...

via: Twitter

But it's cursed, too?!

Some of these faces look straight out of a horror movie.

via: Twitter

This guy being no exception.

A "love" note.

via: Twitter

No thank you.

Another taxidermy crime.

via: Twitter

When will people learn?

Art can be creepy too!

via: Twitter

As this print proves.

And as for this home decor?

via: Twitter

Well, we have several questions.

More horrible dolls.

via: Twitter

We've actually forgotten what nice ones look like.

Ah good, more wall skulls.

via: Twitter

Every home needs one!

A different type of skull.

via: Twitter

This one found in the walls of a house. 

Oh god, the teeth.

via: Twitter

We've had it with dolls.

More creepy art.

via: Twitter

Hair eating is our hard limit.

Contender for the weirdest baby ever?

via: Twitter

Even beating out this guy.

The object you just can't get rid of.

via: Twitter

Really sounds like the plot of a horror movie.

We don't even know what this is.

via: Twitter

And from the look on his face, nor does he.

So creepy.

via: Twitter

This book must be haunted.

Death stockings?

via: Twitter

We give up.

We thought the china dolls were bad.

via: Twitter

But this is ... somehow worse?

A nice bit of light relief here.

via: Twitter

Kind of creepy, kind of hilarious.

Another horrific love favor.

via: Twitter

We're alright for locks of hair, thanks!

And as for this?

via: Twitter

We have no words.

More horrible art now.

via: Twitter

Why would anyone create this?

More grim taxidermy.

via: Twitter

He has a real sinister expression on his face.

Want a memorial of death?

via: Twitter

Look no further!

Is this the worst doll we've seen?

via: Twitter

Let's face it - the competition is strong.

Ah good, there are more.

via: Twitter

Totally dead behind the eyes.

This might be the worst clown photograph.

via: Twitter

And we've seen some horrific ones.

Oh my goodness.

via: Twitter

This cracked face is really sending us.

Face of a ghost?

via: Twitter

Still not the worst thing we've seen.

And one final doll for good luck.

via: Twitter

If you made it here, props to you. Fancy more creepy museums? Scroll on ...
