The Museum of Stupidity

If I had the money, I'd build one. These would be the exhibits:

Financial: Zimbabwe hyperinflation, Dot com bubble, Tulip craze, and South Seas bubble

Scientific & Medical: Earth-centered universe, Piltdown hoax, phrenology, four humors, and anti-masturbation devices, anti-vaccination movement

Political: Prohibition, Great Leap Forward, Reign of Terror, Versailles Treaty

Religious: Witch burning, The Great Disappointment, Indulgences, Aztec human sacrifice, Antisemitism

I'm tempted to build a separate wing just for Islam called the Hall of Islamic Achievements, which would just be an empty room.
