Foods like fermented soybeans, monkey brains and maggots. Museum founder Samuel West told The Washington Post that he wants people to realize that disgust is always in the eye of the beholder.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. And if you're eating breakfast right now, I'm sorry because things are about to get gross. There's a new museum opening in Sweden which will take you on a tour of the world's most disgusting foods - fermented soy beans, Spam, monkey brains and maggots. The museum founder, Samuel West, told The Washington Post he wants people to realize disgust is always in the eye of the beholder. But he realizes that visitors might still get queasy. The museum ticket is actually a vomit bag.
