Laffing Sal at Playland-Not-At-The-Beach – Museum of Fun

Automatons are always a bit creepy, so one can only guess why Laffing Sal was such a popular attraction at funhouses, boardwalks, amusement parks and fairs across the United States during the Great Depression and World War II. Originally mass-produced by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, this mechanical monster terrorized small...

Grampa Jerry’s Clown Museum in Arriba, Colorado

Grampa Jerry’s Clown Museum in Arriba, Colorado

We’ve covered Clown Museums before here at This Belongs In A Museum. Not a surprise the Guinness World Record for “Largest Clown Collection” belongs to Ortys Clownmuseum in Germany. Then there’s the Klown Doll Museum in Nebraska of all places. And let’s not forget John Wayne Gacy’s clown paintings at...

Amsterdam’s Katten Kabinet, Netherlands

Amsterdam’s Katten Kabinet, Netherlands

Considering everyone is freaking out over Instagram selling people’s crappy cat photos without payment, I can’t think of a better time for us to visit Amsterdam’s Katten Kabinet. Yes, these furry egomaniacs get even more attention with their own museum full of sculptures, paintings and other random cat shit (not...

Different Clown’s Museums

Different Clown’s Museums

Sorry Gary Lewis & the Playboys, but not everybody loves a clown. Yet apparently someone else besides Gary likes them because there are several clowns museums in existence. We’ve covered them here on the blog before; the Klown Doll Museum in Nebraska, Ortys Clownmuseum in Germany, and Grampa Jerry’s Clown...

The Stoogeum Museum, Ambler, Pennsylvania

Was not expecting this excellent tribute to the masters of slap stick comedy. I have watched the stooges since I was a little guy watching their two reelers at the YMCA on Saturday afternoons. This is a museum is totally dedicated to stooges memorabilia and souvenirs. Gary Lassin opened it...

Frances Kuyper’s Mini Cake Museum, California

Frances Kuyper’s Mini Cake Museum, California

I just learned that today, the 19th of June, is Museum Cake Day. Uh…don’t ask me why this shit exists…who associates cake with museums? I know I don’t. Cheap wine, maybe but not cake. Anyway, this seems like the perfect time to remember the Frances Kuyper’s Mini Cake Museum, unfortunately...

The Museum of the Odd – Lawrence, Kansas

The Museum of the Odd – Lawrence, Kansas

Only a few days after I told you about the Museum of Animated Carvings, we’re already back in Kansas. In the town of Lawrence, wanna-be blues musician “Honey Boy” (more like “White Boy”) Walker has filled the first floor of his home with such weird collections, including over 500 sock...

Sudha Cars Museum – Hyderabad, India

Sudha Cars Museum – Hyderabad, India

India is known for a few odd museums, like that one about toilets. The Sudha Cars Museum is the first and only handmade, crazy car museum in the world. It’s the brainchild of K Sudhakar, known for holding the Guinness World Record Holder for making the world’s largest tricycle. Finally!...
