Root Beer Saloon, Alto Pass, Illinois

Root Beer Saloon, Alto Pass, Illinois

Not quite a museum, but more like a collection of some long dead hoarder, the World’s First (like there would be more than one?) Root Beer Saloon is a must-see if you like lots of stuff and are anywhere near Alto Pass, Illinois (highly unlikely, but you never know). Entering...

Felissimo Christmas Museum in Hakkaido

Felissimo Christmas Museum in Hakkaido

After focusing on three museums in the United States, Christmas Museum Week now moves to the country of Japan. From 1994 to 2001, the Felissimo Christmas Museum operated in Hakkaido. It looks like the museum still has an on-line presence. What did I learn? That 1549 was the first recorded...

Cockroach Hall of Fame Museum in Plano, Texas

Cockroach Hall of Fame Museum in Plano, Texas

I still have nightmares from living in that one apartment with all the cockroaches, so I don’t think I’ll be visiting the Cockroach Hall of Fame Museum in Plano, Texas anytime soon. Here you see Michael Bodhan, who must be both equally creative and insane. After all, not everyone can...

Cabbage Patch Kids Hospital and Museum in Cleveland, Georgia

Cabbage Patch Kids Hospital and Museum in Cleveland, Georgia

As a child of the 1980s I have plenty of experience with all the toys from that time period. Hey, I even remember having a picture of Boy George in my Cabbage Patch Doll wallet. Wait…what? Yeah, I know. What 4 year old needs to carry cash? CRAZY! Did you...

Haw Par Villa Dragon World, Singapore

Haw Par Villa Dragon World, Singapore

If you’re in Singapore with either your own or somebody else’s children and looking for something to do, then why not take them to the most disturbing theme park of all time (yes, even scarier than the It’s a Small World ride at Disneyland). I am talking about Tiger Balm...
