The “Elephant Man” was the popular name for Joseph Merrick who suffered from Proteus syndrome which warped his skeleton. The remains are not available for general viewing by the public but any medical student or doctor of medical science may visit the university hospital and view the skeleton. c, any medical student or doctor of medical science may visit the university hospital and view the skeleton. To us he looked like an old skateboarder. Those guys are constantly getting smashed up.
3 – Vladimir Lenin Russia

Vladimir Lenin was the leader of Soviet Russia and was embalmed upon his death. His body is on public display in a glass coffin in a mausoleum near the Kremlin in Red Square in Moscow. Getting in to view the body is free, and people travel from across the world to see him. We wonder how many air fresheners they have hanging on the walls in that room.
4 – Barts Pathology Museum United Kingdom

There are lots of medical museums around the world, Barts Pathology Museum in London is special because it is only open for special events. The human remains at Barts are all diseased and were acquired from different points in history. In total, the museum houses over 5,000 different specimens It might be worth a trip to see some really weird stuff there.
5 – Tollund Man Denmark

The Tolland Man is one of the best-preserved bog bodies in the world. The body was discovered with a rope around its neck, indicating that the man had been killed by hanging. Traces of a final meal of porridge or oats were still in the small intestines. Porridge and oats are not what we want for our last meal. Steak and potato and ice cream top our list of things to eat but that is for another day and another list. If you would like to go see him he is on display at the Silkeborg Museum in Denmark.
