So, I just finished reading (from my book collection) Offbeat Museums: The Collection and Curators of America’s Most Unusual Museums by Saul Rubin. Some have closed, unfortunately (the book was put out in 1997) but many of the museums still remain. Check out the book for some off-the-beaten path museum adventures!
So many I’d like to visit, including this one, if it re-opens in a different locale, as the website claims (Apparently, a pretty controversial museum. Pretty telling that a basic human function OF WOMEN, could create such furor. :-p Just so silly that humans can still be so small-minded and un-progressive.).
I’d love to re-visit this one. One of the travel bloggers I follow (Travelling Jules) who was touring Amsterdam, when asking for what we liked about Amsterdam, reminded me that I visited this fascinating museum–the Venustempel, or Sexmuseum (on the website they list the minimum entry/viewing age as 16). An intellectual pleasure to see history and archaeological artifacts uncensored (no creepy pun intended LOL).
Or maybe check out this covert museum, full of secrets.
As some of you may remember from a couple of my previous blog entries, I enjoyed visiting Tinkertown, located in New Mexico.
What’s the oddest “offbeat” museum you’ve visited?
