The Top Ten

1 A Cat In a Box With a Vial of Poisonous Gas

In theory, not a bad application of the classic thought experiment. In practice, highly unethical. - PositronWildhawk

2 A Trained Talking Tour Guide Dog Named Pavlov
3 The Brains of Previous Visitors Who Went Out of Line In Jars
4 Marie Curie's Radioactive Labs and Home Rebuilt On the Museum

Her workbooks, even her kitchen, are considered too radioactive to handle without full-on protection. So taking a tour through her rebuilt home would be quite risky. - PositronWildhawk

5 An Atomic Bomb That Failed to Go Off In Its Test

Caps girl will eat it.

Guide-this my friends is a live atomic bomb which failed to go off...click pictures but don't touch - Toucan

DO NOT CLIMB ON THIS ARTIFACT. - PositronWildhawk

6 Albert Einstein's Prostate

Because his brain was cut up by surgeons and his eyeballs went missing. - PositronWildhawk

7 A Real Life Demonstration of Human Copulation

With proper equipment, gloves and some medicine (if the equipment is malfunctioning). - Kiteretsunu

8 A Smallpox-Infested Arm

I would probably want to avoid this exhibit - Ajkloth

9 A Miniature Star

That might be a little hard. The smallest type of star in the universe is a neutron star, which is about the size of a town. If that weren't enough, the density of the star makes it weigh more than any celestial body in the solar system (including the sun). The world would be ripped apart by the gravity field of the star. And don't forget all the radiation and heat it would emit. - ethanmeinster

10 A Record of All Harmful Bacteria Detected In the Urine and Stool Samples of Everyone In the Museum Who Used the Lavatories

The Contenders

11 A live Ebola specimen in a petri dish

You might want to avoid the museum in this case, or even the whole county. - ethanmeinster
