一提到博物馆,不少人会想到 “国家博物馆”、“古代历史博物馆”、“艺术博物馆” 等常见的字眼。这类规模甚大的博物馆内通常陈列着和特定艺术、历史和文化有关的经典展品。但有一些博物馆则不遵循惯例,它们致力于收藏古怪而离奇的展品。幸好每个人的兴趣和品味都不同,所以总有那么一个能激起你的兴趣!
 
What comes to mind when you think of a museum? Perhaps you picture an imposing1 building in a rather traditional design made of high-quality stone? Perhaps you imagine one of the classic concepts, such as the museum of natural history, the museum of fine art, or the national museum - its exhibits displayed in a time-honoured style and falling in line with convention.
 
Some people might consider these customary institutions the best way to safeguard the future of typical educational topics. A museum of antique breadboards, they may say, does not constitute an orthodox or legitimate2 exhibition. But according to the Museums Association, a museum is defined as a place enabling "…people to explore collections for inspiration, learning and enjoyment3."  And so of the 2500 estimated museums in the UK, a few are bound to be considered a little unconventional, eccentric or even niche4. No matter how atypical your interest, there's a museum for you!
 
What about Neil Cole's Adventures in Science Fiction? This quirky museum of classic science fiction was opened by founder5 Neil Cole. Visitors to this Allendale attraction in Northumberland can see items ranging from props6 used in the BBC series Dr Who to part of Thor's costume from the Avengers movie. "Science fiction has become more mainstream7 so I thought people might want to see this," says Mr Cole.
 
If clocks are more to your taste, why not visit the Cuckooland Museum? Set up by brothers Roman and Maz Piekarski, this Cheshire collection of over 600 cuckoo clocks is considered to be the largest of its kind in the world – and all from the Black Forest region in Germany.
 
Finally, you could visit the Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities in London. This offbeat8, alternative institution bucks9 the trend of educating visitors through written explanations alongside its curios. Instead, it displays all of its kooky treasures, which include dodo bones, shrunken heads and a collection of McDonald's Happy Meal toys, with no explanation at all. 
 
These are just a few examples. There are many more wonderful institutions out there that march to the beat of their own drum. All you have to do is go and find them!
