Weird wacky museums of the world
Weird, odd, strange or just different
That's what you could says about the museums I have found here. I really did not know what I was getting myself into when I decided to write this hub. I thought what a neat thing, a list of odd and weird museums. After looking at hundreds of pages of museums on the web, I came up with these. I am sure there are so many others out there that I have not found. I encountered broken links, museums closing or moving, and some just had no website at all, so I was not sure if they were valid museums. If you have been to a weird, odd or just plain different museum that is not on this list, Please let me know, I would love for this to be the complete list. Hope you enjoy it.
