Silly America Abroad

Creepy bugs? Check. Weird birds of species you’ve probably never heard of before? Check. Giant fake crocodile? Check. Fake woodland landscape? Check. Snakes and turtles preserved in jars? Check.

The small Bengal Natural History Museum in Darjeeling, India features an array of stuffed wildlife indigenous to the area. Though the collection may seem a bit dusty and dated, with an admission price of 10 rupees (about 20 cents American), it’s definitely a fun (and silly) diversion for a rainy day in the mountains.

The Bengal Natural History Museum is located on Bishop Eric Benjamin Road in Darjeeling, India.
