  • Rosie gave a great tour of the “museum”. No politics, no religion (besides descriptions of religious art). The museum is worth seeing because it’ll stick in your mind forever. If you’re like most of us, you had no idea that hair was used as a genealogical database before DNA and detailed family trees. Besides the record-keeping aspect, the detailed tatting-like work that was performed using hair is incredible. The tour is just long enough because at some point you’ve seen it all, but the details are incredible to see. The Smithsonian will have this stuff at some point, but I recommend you see it here first.
