Phobia of the smell of museums!!

I don't know why, but I have a certain aversion to museums, because of the smell. This has been with me for years; the musky smell really freaks me out, and the echoing rooms, along with the wax figures. My worst experience in a museum was in Cornwall. There was an extremely small museum and my Mum thought it would be a good idea to go in there. I was quite frightened already, since I hated museums, but it couldn't be too bad, could it? I was wrong, as soon as I walked into the museum that same musky smell that haunted me hit me straight in the face. I panicked and tried to run out of the door, but it was blocked by people approaching. I had to progress and the smell got stronger. I was really panicking now, because I hated wax dolls, tight spaces and the smell of museums. I ran out of the exits crying and swore to never go into a small museum again. It is totally bonkers I know, but i am petrified. It reminds me of death!!!!!! My other phobias in order of most scared of consist of:

1: Spiders. I hate them so much.

2: Needles. They don't even need to touch me to make me cry.

3: Museums and the smell!!

4: Dark. It scares the hell out of me

5: Death. I suppose everyone is!?
