The Spirit Museum in Stockholm Seems Like a Strange Place

Normally you would expect a place with the title "Museum" attached to it to be a place of learning, history, trivia, whatever, but the Spirit Museum in Stockholm sounds to be a somewhat ridiculous departure from what we think of museums as. It's, apparently, supposed to be a trip through human nature as a person drinks more alcohol, which in its own right sounds like an utterly fascinating place nonetheless, even if I'm not learning anything.

Sweden has a strange relationship with alcohol. After going through a period of prohibition in the early 20th century, booze officially resurfaced but under strict government control. Today, for example, you can only find three brands of vodka on store shelves: Absolut, Good ol' Sailor, and Explorer. If you want a more high-end variety – say, Karlsson or Purity – you'd have to find it in a bar or order it online.

Whatever the case, you might need a bit of vodka before visiting the new Spirit Museum, or as it's officially written, Spiritmuseum, in Stockholm.
