The Museum of Death has a tally to keep track of visitors who vomit or pass out

It’s not often we’d willingly go to an attraction where there’s a track record of people vomiting or passing out.
But hey, some people are into darker types of fun.
And workers at The Museum of Death in Louisiana actually keep a tally chart of visitors who find it all a bit too much to handle.
Putting any weirdness aside, the museum in New Orleans does seem pretty interesting, and clearly it attempts to take a difference stance on death then we might be used to.
It's going to happen to us all, after all. Whether we like it or not, we'd better start getting ready.
Inside the museum, you'll find artefacts from various famous murderers - people like John Wayne Gacy - and a number of other macabre things such as 'Dr Death' Jack Kevorkian's euthanasia machine (the 'Thanatron'), and genuine human bones and taxidermy.
It's not for the faint of heart, in short.
Obviously, the nature of the museum can prove a little bit too much for some people, and people have been known to vomit or pass out from time to time.
It's not something that happens all the time, but still.
Scott Healy, the curator of the New Orleans collection, told National Geographic: "People open up, they ask questions. When you walk through and see real things attached to these stories, it becomes personal."
Too personal for some of them, it would seem.
Despite that, he explained how the museum ends up coming across some of its exhibits.
He said: "The reason [the museum] kind of started was the lack of education of death in our society, the taboo nature, and the inquisitiveness of it.
"We wanted to educate people.
"The sourcing starts out by reaching out to a serial killer and asking them if they'd be interested in donating something, because they can't profit or sell their stuff.
"Then you start interviewing them. Correspondence will start with the donation and go from there."
On top of that, they'll attend police auctions to see if there's a strange and unusual bargain to be had.
Despite all of the bizarre exhibitions and dark subject matter, the museum is ultimately a place of learning, and even fun.
Healy added: "This is a place where you can be creepy and not be judged for it."
Good luck to them - we could all do worse than to be a bit more inquisitive about death.
