While it’s true that most museums are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge in one area or another, there are some U.S. museums that take on truly strange topics. Across our nation there are galleries and exhibits devoted to bizarre subjects — like American folklore heroes, human hair art, dolls, clowns, miniature farm vehicles, and even mustard.
There are some museums that are considered strange due to their history, as well as some that are odd for being prehistoric excavation sites seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Though considered unusual, these “strange” museums are necessary because they enrich guests lives with tangible information that, yes, you could probably see on the internet — but it’s way cooler to see it first-hand.
The Daily Meal has rounded up the strangest, the oddest, and honestly some of the coolest museums in the U.S. that are worth visiting on any future road trips to off-the-beaten-path tourist locales. Click here for the strangest museum in every state gallery.
