Prince Edward Island Potato Museum, Canada

Prince Edward Island Potato Museum, Canada

So it doesn’t feel left out, let me also mention the Prince Edward Island Potato Museum. Museums about potatoes seem to have this thing for putting huge potato sculptures outside for visitors to pose for crappy iPhone pictures. Yeah, because it’s perfectly normal to sit on a bench with a...

Santa Claus Museum in Santa Claus, Indiana

Santa Claus Museum in Santa Claus, Indiana

Today begins Christmas Museum Week. Don’t worry…you’re not missing anything. It’s something I just made up. Christmas Museum Week is kind of like Shark Week, just not as exciting. The Santa Claus Museum in Santa Claus, Indiana is a good place to start. “The town’s name did not peak interest...

Deutsches Currywurst Museum, Berlin

Deutsches Currywurst Museum, Berlin

You’d think Germany’s most popular snack food (eaten about 800 million times per year) is worthy of its own museum. Don’t worry. It’s got one. In case you haven’t been to Germany, well, currywurst is basically hot pork sausage covered in a spicy curry sauce. At the Currywurst Museum you...

The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum, Japan

The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum, Japan

The Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum is devoted to what else…the Japanese ramen noodle soup and features a large recreation of Tokyo in 1958, the year instant noodles were invented. Within the museum there are branches of famous restaurants as well as new ones. I don’t eat the stuff, but poor college...

Oatmeal Festival, Bertram, Texas

Oatmeal Festival, Bertram, Texas

In graduate school I had a friend who ate nothing but oatmeal because he claimed he was fat and this was the only way he could lose weight. In somewhat unrelated news, I gained, like, 40 pounds while I was in grad school so maybe I should have followed his...

In this global economy times are bleak so empty malls around the world from the United States to Europe are being turned into museums. One such development is the Forum Istanbul, a former shopping mall, now home to Turkey’s first ice museum. What a great way to escape from the...

Reiff’s Gas Station Museum

Reiff’s Gas Station Museum

It might look like a gas station, but appearances can be deceiving. This is actually someone’s home. Known as Reiff’s Gas Station Museum, the homeowner Mark Reiff has completely remodeled his house and front lawn to resemble a real gas station. There is even a 1950s-style diner inside with mannequins...

Shania Twain Centre

There is nothing I enjoy better than a random celebrity museum. If you are a recent follower to this blog, then please check out my earlier posts on Lucille Ball, Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds. The Shania Twain Centre is the number one tourist attraction in the Timmins, Ontario area…actually...

Mr. Ed’s Elephant Museum in Pennsylvania

Mr. Ed’s Elephant Museum in Pennsylvania

Almost a year ago, Mr. Ed’s Elephant Museum in Pennsylvania lost one-third of its 10,000 elephant collection in a devastating fire. Luckily, Mr. Ed has received community support and a number of donations in his effort to rebuild the museum. From the good luck gift he received on his wedding...

Peeing Colors, Ukraine

Peeing Colors, Ukraine

This next one isn’t a museum, but it probably should be in one (apparently it has graced a few art galleries, so I have no need to worry). If you find yourself with a desperate need to go to the toilet, it’s best you not walk through the central district...
