Spain is home to some of the finest museums in the world, but it also boasts some of the most bizarre. From the museum dedicated entirely to melons to the museum of toilets, The Local counts down Spain's weirdest.

From Madrid’s 'golden triangle' of the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen to Bilbao’s iconic Guggenheim, Spain is an ideal destination for culture vultures.

But when you get sick of gazing at Goya, marveling at Miro and peering at Picasso, why not visit some of Spain’s more, how shall we put it, specialized museums.

From a warehouse dedicated to funeral carriages to they garden full of explicit stone sculptures, The Local walks you through Spain’s ten weirdest museums.
