Heladeria Coromoto ice cream parlor in Merida, Venezuela

When it’s this humid outside, there’s nothing better than having a scoop of ice cream. No, this next place isn’t a museum, but it is definitely a collector of ice cream flavors, 900 to be exact. Trout, hot dog, honey pollen, crab, gherkin, spaghetti…everything you’d ever want to eat in...

Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama

Ever lost something important on a plane ride? Knock on wood…I can’t say I ever have, unless you count that vitally important British celebrity tabloid magazine from 2005. Oh, darn! I needed that for my hoarding pile (joke). The Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, Alabama isn’t a museum, but it’s...
