What happens when obsessions become collections? Sure, collecting stamps or baseball cards are normal hobbies, but hair? Toilets? The folks over at Lonely Planet put together a handy list of the strangest attractions around the world.

You decide what's odd and what's surprisingly normal. Text courtesy of Lonely Planet.

Sewer Museum, Paris
1 of 11
Prepare yourself: the ‘galleries’ of the Musée des Egouts de Paris are actually disused sections of Paris‘ sewerage system (fans of Hugo’s Les Misérables will know what to expect). The smell is unbelievable and let that be a warning – you can’t completely eradicate over 100 years of crap. Exhibits include photographs, maps and stuffed sewer rats. As a bonus, you can actually walk around on walkways just above flowing, flushing waste from the stinky Parisians above ground. There’s a souvenir shop, too, that sells…ah…

It’s open Saturday to Wednesday; Paris Museum pass holders get in for free.
