Well I have heard of museums of art, music, kings and empires, great leaders and the list goes on during my odysseys across Asia, Europe and America. I have explored numerous such museums, all of them wonderful channels to glorious past present or future. But then I was startled and amazed upon visiting the Schweine-Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. It is the largest pig museum in the world.
