Museum Challenges Bored Curators to Share the Creepiest Items from Their Collections

With most art establishments around the world shut down due to the coronavirus crisis, house-bound museums are coming up with all kinds of ways to share art.

For instance, the Yorkshire Museum in the UK recently made an open call on Twitter asking for art enthusiasts to share pictures of the most disturbing items in their collections using the hashtag #CreepiestObjects.

The Yorkshire Museum got it all started by sharing a picture of a hair bun that belonged to a Roman woman in the third or fourth century. The bun has a couple of pins sticking out of it. Museum experts soon started posting their own materials including a blood-soaked doll without an eye, a burned leg that transformed into a weird creature, a 16th-century plague mask, and much more.

Brace yourself for the most unsettling Tweets:
