10 Awesomely Odd Places In Wisconsin That Are A Must-See For Everyone
Everyone flocks to Chicago or NYC for the best museums. But who wants to look at a bunch of art or caveman figures all day? It turns out that some of the best “non-traditional” museums are in America’s Dairyland. Read on for some of our favorites:
1. The National Brewery Museum. A museum about beer--this is kind of museum a true Wisconsinite wouldn't mind spending an afternoon exploring.
2. The Mining Museum and Rollo Jamison Museum. Really, you get two for the price of one. You can ride in an actual mine train from 1931. You're basically Indiana Jones for an afternoon.
3. Fennimore Doll & Toy Museum. Okay, I get it, dolls are creepy. So if you get freaked out, you should definitely not come here. Ever. But if you want to see the history of toys and dolls, this place is AMAZING.
4. Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum. Yes, this place actually exists.
5. I would be remiss if I didn't instruct you to visit the Packers Hall of Fame when you're in Wisconsin. But really the only thing odd about it is how many more Lombardis you'll see than a tour of Halas Hall.
6. Spinning Top & Yo-Yo Museum. It's homage to the best toy ever made. It'll bring out your inner child.
7. The History Museum at the Castle. Great local history of the area, but nothing to do with a castle. But featured in a castle.
8. The Angel Museum. It's only moderately creepy. Be sure to check out the angels donated by Oprah!
9. National Mustard Museum. The only thing better than seeing walls full of every single variety of mustard ever--tasting them!
10. World of Accordions Museum. You can visit a museum of accordions. Hey, you can't very well play "Roll Out the Barrel" without one!
Okay I’m pretty sure you’d rather see any of this than an original Picasso. And if not, then you hate Mustard and, therefore, hate America.
