Eighty global delicacies including balut and durian will be featured in the Disgusting Food Museum in the Swedish town Malmö from now until Jan. 27. 

The museum will have mostly replicas and interactive exhibits and videos, according to Business Insider.

Delicacies that will be a part of the Asian foods portion of the display include balut, a developing bird embryo that is boiled and eaten from the shell.

Other foods include dog meat, mouse wine, Three Penis Wine, durian, stinky tofu, natto and century eggs.

Museum director Andreas Ahrens said in a statement that the foods are chosen for their modern relevance or historical prominence.

Museum curator Samuel West wants to change the concept of what “disgusting” food is.

“If we can change our notions of what food is disgusting or not, it could potentially help us transition to more sustainable protein sources,” he said.
