There is a museum for everything. The latest one to open may turn you off your dinner. It is the Disgusting Food Museum, which opened this week in Sweden. It will allow people to analyze why they love or hate certain foods. They might also think about alternative food sources. The museum's founder explained why he started it. He was researching the effect meat had on the environment. He then thought about different sources of protein, like insects. He said: "If you ask people if they want to eat bugs, they say 'that's gross.' Maybe I can make them reconsider."

The museum will challenge four of our five senses - smell, touch, sight and taste. There is food from around the world that some people think is "disgusting". However, people in other parts of the world think this food is normal. It is a regular part of their diet. The food exhibits include food like fried tarantula, fermented shark and sheep eyeball juice. The founder said we could all eat any food, but our culture teaches us what food is not tasty. He said: "What we find disgusting has to be learned - it's purely cultural." He added: "One of my worries is that it will start [smelling] in here."
