Nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Houston, Texas, the National Museum of Funeral History hosts an unlikely collection celebrating our final send-off.
From a visual history of embalming to African fantasy coffins, the museum takes an in-depth look at the history, science, and art of death. Featured in its unique collection is JFK's original eternal flame, a diverse array of funeral programs from famous people, and a collection of beautiful hearses, both horse-drawn and motorized, including a funeral bus which more than lived up to its name. Join us this Obscura Day for a docent-lead tour of the museum's fascinating collection.
