Wednesday was International Museum Day, a day that "aims to increase public awareness of the role of museums in developing society," according to the International Council of Museums.
The first International Museum Day was in 1977, and each year since, it has been held around May 18. (Click here to see some of the best museums in the world.)
This year's theme is "Museum and Memory."
The theme for International Museum Day 2011 is Museum and Memory. Museums preserve memories and tell stories. They have in their collections numerous objects that are fundamental to the memory of the communities we live in. These objects are the expression of our natural and cultural heritage. Many of them are fragile, some endangered, and they all need special care and conservation.
To celebrate International Museum Day 2011, we bring you some of the world's weirdest museums. These include museums dedicated to the toilets, bananas and Spam.
