Oddities on Display


Many people collect things. And some even organize them in interesting ways. But taking it to the next level – presenting these collections, in an educational and contextual way – can turn almost any collection into a museum. Fans of these odd displays of quirky origin will love the Kazoo Museum in Beaufort, South Carolina, which dates the kazoo back to 1840. Or there’s the Museum of Jurassic Technology in LA, which defies description, mingling an array of objects and poetic stories. There are so many chocolate museums that there is a top-10 list as a guide here. Many more off-the-beaten museum path finds are here, including a Clock Museum in Vienna, a Ramones Museum in Berlin, and a lunch box museum in Georgia.
