Don Aslett’s Museum of Clean, Idaho

Don Aslett’s Museum of Clean, Idaho

Spent all day cleaning (anyone telling you it’s fun is freakin’ lying), which made me wonder if there were any museums dedicated to this activity. Apparently the state of Idaho is very fastidious as they have Don Aslett’s Museum of Clean. Self-proclaimed as America’s number one cleaning expert, his museum...

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

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

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...

Turkey’s first ice museum, Istanbul

Turkey’s first ice museum, Istanbul

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

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...
