Just a couple of months until the kids are let out of school for end-of-year vacation, so why not plan a trip to the museum with them? The Parasite Museum. Yes, this museum (The Meguro Parasitological Museum) actually exists and even has an adjoining gift shop so you can proudly wear your very own parasitic tee home.

Why is this museum even a thing? For research. And for fun, I imagine. The first floor is dedicated to the general overview of parasites while the second floor focuses on human parasites and their life cycles, “showcasing 300 actual specimens.” It’s located in Tokyo and admission is free.
