Brooklyn, New York: Morbid Anatomy Museum

An outgrowth of the personal collection of founder Joanna Ebenstein, "at the intersection of death and beauty." Rare instance of a blog spawning a physical museum. Closed from lack of money in Dec. 2016. Reopened April 2018 in a much smaller space.

Morbid Anatomy Museum

Interesting collection of books in the library, as well as various oddities. A stretch to call it a museum (and charge $8). The lobby, which also hosts a coffee house, had the more interesting items.
