As unique and bizarre as it sounds, the Museum of Funeral History is a very well made brainchild of Robert L. Waltrip who wanted to make people aware of all the aspects of what he called “death care”.
The Museum has several different exhibits such as “Thanks for the memories” which has a display of the most memorable or outrageous funerals ever held. “Day of the Dead” which has fascinating exhibits about the stories and traditions related to the Dia de los Muertos which is observed in Mexico and other countries, “19th Century Mourning Customs” which is an enlightening look into the said eras social life as well as others.
The beautiful clothes, objects and art associated with funerals are worth seeing. Also worth seeing is the exhibit of coffins and caskets from over the years. This museum with its really unique theme is a one-of-a-kind sight to see in Houston.
