dana: The museum of las "Momias de Guanajuato" located in Mexico is a museum dedicated to the remains/corpses of people who were never identified, who's family don't have the money to pay the rent of the cemetery, forgotten people, or just donations from hospitals etc. For example, there's one corpse of a woman who was accidentally buried alive and another one of an abandoned child. Many people say that the corpses turn their heads when you walk in front of their exhibits and other say it's just hunted but you never know.
