    Founded by George Galore within the building that housed the State Lunatic Asylum No. 2, it traces the history of the evolving medical specialty that's psychiatry. Complete with artifacts and devices used by psychiatric professionals and life size dioramas depicting treatments at the asylum, it provides a great insight into the progress of psychiatry. Apart from the medical apparatus, it also features artwork by some of the inmates at the old facility, the eeriest of the lot being a rendition of the 1,446 items swallowed by a patient, which includes screws, nails, safety pins and such. Easily one of the most spookiest museums around, the Glore Psychiatric Museum takes “crazy” to another level.
