The Glore Psychiatric Museum, St. Joseph, Missouri

The Glore Psychiatric Museum, which began in the ward of a state asylum, houses art from its previous patients, the inhumane tactics used to treat mental illness (including lobotomy instruments and a locked giant gerbil wheel), and other artifacts. Don't miss the mosaic created from 1,446 nails, screws, safety pins and other items swallowed by a patient and removed from her intestines and stomach.
