The words
There is a museum for everything [these / this] days. The latest museum to open may turn you [on / off] your dinner. It is the Disgusting Food Museum, which opened earlier [this / next] week in Malmo, Sweden. The new exhibition will allow people to [analysis / analyze] why people love and hate [certain / certainly] foods. It might also lead them to consider alternative food [source / sources] . The museum's founder, Dr Samuel West, explained why he created [the / a] project. He said he was [researched / researching] the effect of meat consumption and its effect [on / up] the environment. This made him think about alternative sources of protein, like insects. He said: "If you ask people if they want to eat bugs, they say 'that's gross.' That's the obstacle, but maybe I can make [them / they] reconsider."

The museum is a 400-square-meter [spaces / space] that will challenge four of our five senses - smell, touch, [sight / see] and taste. The displays include food [from / for] around the world that some people might think is "disgusting". However people in other parts [off / of] the world think this food is [totally / total] normal and is a regular part of their diet. The food exhibits include American favorites such [as / has] Jell-O salad and world food like fried tarantula, fermented shark, roasted guinea pigs and sheep eyeball juice. Dr West said we could all eat [many / any] food, but our culture [tells / speaks] us what is tasty and what is [not / no] . 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 [striking / stinking] in here."
