Switzerland's Museum of Stuffed Frogs Creates Tableaus

I love the concept of this Frog museum located in Estavayer-le-Lac, Switzerland. The museum is brilliantly random and very strange, but that is what makes is so appealing. With 150-year-old satirical tableaus of domestic life recreated with stuffed frogs, who wouldn’t want to visit?

The museum started in the 1850s with an eccentric Napoleonic guard officer who, simply put, loved frogs. 

Although interesting, there is something quite unsettling about stuffed frogs playing snooker. Stats for Amphibian Taxidermy Trending: Older & Average
