Very cool link post # 102 - Back to Offbeat and Odd

By: palmettobug53, 2:18 AM GMT on February 01, 2013

After reading about the Spam Museum in Shore's WP entry the other day, I got to thinking about other offbeat and odd museums I've read about or seen on TV.

There's the prickly Barbed Wire Museum.

How about the electrifying SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention?

There's the morbidly fascinating Mutter Museum.

You can yearn for a hot dog at the National Mustard Museum.

You can cringe at the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA).

Bring your worn down pencils to the Paul A. Johnson Pencil Sharpener Museum.

Get the butter and sour cream and head for the Idaho Potato Museum.

Break out your black suit or dress and visit the National Museum of Funeral History.

Bring your appetite to the Food Museum.

While not exactly offbeat or odd, you could dress up as Scarlett or Rhett to visit the Road to Tara Museum.

Or take in the entire Gone With The Wind Trail, which includes the Road to Tara Museum.

If you're visiting Charleston, brush your teeth, floss and hie yourself over to the Macaulay Museum of Dental History.

The Waring Library next door usually has some medical items on display, as well as small changing exhibits in the library and an expanding online series of exhibits.

I know there are lots of other offbeat or odd collections available for public view. If you have heard of one or been to one, tell us about it!

Don't forget to keep checking back to the hummer cam. (See Recommended Links) Phoebe will likely lay another clutch soon.
