The world’s first – and possibly last – Disgusting Food Museum will open in Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city, on 31 October.

Axar.az reports that the unusual attraction will exhibit some of the most divisive dishes from around the globe, from rotten shark (a delicacy in Iceland) to south-east Asia’s infamously foul-smelling durian, a type of fruit so pungent it’s banned on public transport in Singapore.

The museum is the brainchild of Dr Samuel West, the man behind the hugely popular Museum of Failure in Helsingborg, Sweden; it now has franchises in Toronto and Los Angeles, with another opening planned for Shanghai.

Of his two concepts, the American psychologist told The Local: “They’re both fun, but the food museum is much more relatable and much more interactive. You can only sniff failure to a certain extent. But if you have rotten shark in your face you wish you were never born.”

He said that, while first and foremost intended to be “fun, interesting and interactive,” the museum also has a sustainability slant: “We need to question our ideas of disgust if we’re going to consider some of the more environmentally friendly sources of protein, like insects.”
