Museum of Failure

Yep, you heard right. A museum dedicated to failed products. And it tours!

It was started in Sweden, and there are now different exhibitions in different countries. The curator, Samuel West (now bankrupt) wished to highlight that many innovations would not have been possible without failures along the road to success. Not being afraid of failure has led to many great inventions.

It features such delights as:

Amazon Fire Phone (cost Amazon $170 million)

A plastic bicycle

Colgate lasagne

Green ketchup

Twitter Peek, a Tweet device that could not display 140 characters!


Bic Pens for Her

Double drumsticks

Blue and purple ketchup

Spray on condoms

Orange juice flavoured cereal

Lifesaver holes

Harley Davidson fragrances

Trump Monopoly

Coffee-flavoured Coke

Sony Betamax 

A drink with chewy bits in it
