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...

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

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,...

World’s Smallest Ramones Museum, Ireland

World’s Smallest Ramones Museum, Ireland

I once told you about that time I visited the Ramones Museum in Berlin. I’ve also told you about many small museums, like the 22 square foot closet known as Edgar’s Closet, the Micro Mµseum in Somerville, the World’s Largest Collection of the Smallest Versions of Large Things as well...

Karen Ferrier’s 101 Dalmatian Collection

Karen Ferrier’s 101 Dalmatian Collection

Like every 80’s child forced to sit in front of a television with a VHS of some random Disney film while my single parent mom worked three jobs, I remember watching 101 Dalmatians. Even though I didn’t watch that shit as much as The Three Caballeros and Lady and the...

Ramones Museum, Berlin, Germany

Ramones Museum, Berlin, Germany

I like to think of myself as a traveler and not a tourist. Three and a half years ago, I wandered the streets of Berlin with no real purpose. Of course I had some ideas of places I wanted to see, but sometimes it’s better to stay away from the...
