The National Museum of Funeral History ( is on Houston’s far north side at 415 Barren Springs Dr Houston, TX 77090. Call them at 281-876-3063 for current hours and admission prices.

The gift shop is full of nifty stuff, the replica of Abraham Lincoln’s casket is surprisingly modern in it’s decoration (goths and punks will love it!), and the walk-through section featuring what happens when a Pope dies is amazing!
