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...

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 Voyage to Charles Darwin’s House, England

The Voyage to Charles Darwin’s House, England

For historic house museum week, we begin with a memorable one, well, at least for me. Why? Because when you’re a postgrad student, you’ll do just about anything to get that degree. A special exhibit nearing the end of its run happened to be the main topic of my friend’s...

Lantrip Ashtray Museum in Oroville, California

Lantrip Ashtray Museum in Oroville, California

I’d say just about all my friends are smokers from “smoke two packs a day” to the casual/social kind. I find it pretty gross, besides the fact that it’s freakin’ expensive. But that doesn’t mean I’m not intrigued by the Lantrip Ashtray Museum in Oroville, California. The local Postmaster, Dean...

Explorers Club in Manhattan

Explorers Club in Manhattan

I’ve just read back-to-back books about Mount Everest, so let’s just say the topic of exploration is floating around inside my brain right now. Did you know there is an Explorers Club in Manhattan? Located in an old mansion on East 70th Street, the organization was originally founded in 1904...

Outhouse Museum, Gregory, South Dakota

Outhouse Museum, Gregory, South Dakota

I believe South Dakota is one of the few U.S. States without indoor plumbing, so what a surprise to learn it is home to an Outhouse Museum. An outhouse is literally outside, which explains why the museum is…you guessed it…outside. Founder, curator, benefactor and local outhouse expert Richard Papousek established...

Dot’s Mini-Museum, Texas

Dot’s Mini-Museum, Texas

Old Route 66 ends in Vega, Texas at Dot’s Mini-Museum. Dot (may she rest in peace) and her daughter collected items related to the Mother Road as well as other stuff like Avon perfume bottles and cowboy memorabilia (some of which is now part of a cowboy boot tree) all...

RV Museum and Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana

RV Museum and Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana

Believe it or not, there is an actual RV Museum and Hall of Fame. It’s in Elkhart, Indiana of all places, but what’s really surprising is they found enough people who want to be in it. So if you know anyone who has made a lasting contribution to the recreational...

British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum

British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to open up my own museum. Well, one man in Britain did just that, specifically with old radios, televisions and gramphones. They fill every room in his south London suburb home. This do-it-yourself museum, called the British Vintage Wireless and Television Museum,...
