Surströmming, durian fruit, eyeballs, maggot cheese and more: the Disgusting Food Museum shows the limits of good taste. What at first glance seems like a culinary cabinet of horrors soon turns out to be an object lesson in how taste can vary according to individual and cultural preferences.

Learn about Climate Protection and Animal Welfare Issues

The aim of the Disgusting Food Museum is not merely to disgust and shock its visitors. Rather, its permanent exhibition shows how the human feeling of disgust works and how it can be influenced. For example, it becomes clear that food based on animal cruelty practices, such as foie gras, can evoke our disgust. Furthermore, the museum supports its visitors in overcoming the feeling of disgust that usually arises immediately at the first sensory experience - be it the smell or the mere sight of a dish - and is often based on one's own cultural imprint. Visitors who confront the object of disgust can overcome this first impression and have new, defining experiences.

Tasting Bar for Brave Visitors

Visitors who manage to surpass their initial reaction can try some of the foods on display at the museum's tasting bar. The menu includes delicacies such as insect bars and haggis. The samples are not meant to be eaten on the spot, but to be taken away.
