These unusual museum concepts offer unconventional visitor experiences. While traditional museums can be extremely educational, not everyone finds these visits to be an enjoyable experience. These unusual galleries are designed to add a level of fun and excitement to the conventional museum experience.

While many adults are interested in visiting museums, children are often less enthusiastic about such outings. In order to make the museum experience more enjoyable for children, many galleries have sought to cater to a younger audience. These kid-friendly facilities include candy-inspired museums, cartoon dog museums and multi-sensory art museums.

Beyond catering to the needs of children, many museums have sought to draw in the types of consumers that would not usually visit a traditional gallery. In order to appeal to a different type of audience, many museums have designed unique installations and interactive exhibits that make the experience more entertaining. Some of these unusual museum features include sensory light installations, edible art exhibits and investigative museum-exploring apps.
