I don’t know about you, but I love weird things. And of course, only in Tokyo will you find a research center/museum with such horrifyingly creepy attractions. 

The Meguro Parasitological Museum is the perfect stop for the curious traveler with a bent towards the bizarre. This museum is technically a private research facility, first established in 1953. Inside, you’ll find over 300 parasite specimens which also serve as an educational purpose. 

But, its claim to fame is the world’ longest tapeworm, nearly 8.8 meters in length.

The best thing about the Meguro Parasitological Museum is that it’s free. It gladly accepts donations. 

10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Closed Monday and Tuesdays (special hours around national holidays)
(When a national holiday falls on Monday or Tuesday, the museum is open, but closed on the following weekday.) 

4-1-1 Shimomeguro, Meguro-ku, Tokyo 153-0064, JAPAN (153-0064 東京都目黒区下目黒4-1-1)



This museum also offers Free wi-fi. Boom.
