Whoever said museums are boring are clearly yet to make a trip to the Welcome Museum! – a museum which showcases the out-of-the ordinary, gripping and intriguing aspects of humanity such as the “Superhuman” exhibition. Delving into some of man’s most pressing questions and issues; the Welcome Museum isn’t a museum that will send you to sleep.
