Here Are The 11 Weirdest Places You Can Possibly Go In Michigan
Your routine getting a little stale? Why not explore some of the strangest places Michigan has to offer. These places range from awe-inspiring, downright spooky and the truly creepy. Enjoy!
11) St. Ignace Mystery Spot
Have you ever felt off-balance? Stop by this roadside attraction and your equalibrium will be tested forever.
10) Dinosaur Gardens Prehistoric Zoo, Ossineke
Here, you'll walk alongside life-size dinosaur replicas (my inner kindergartner is into this place).
9) Shrine of the Snowshoe Priest
In the UP town of L'Anse is where you'll find this shrine in honor of the 19th-century Jesuit missionary Bishop Frederic Baraga. He appears aptly prepared for a Michigan winter with a snowshoe in his hand.
8) Weird Michigan Wax Museum
Want to get a look at the infamous wooden leg killer of Grand Rapids? How about the Belle Isle snake princess? You'll find these oddities and more at this freaky wax museum.
7) Wave Field, Ann Arbor
No, these aren't oversized mole hills. These mounds, situated on the grounds of University of Michigan, are in fact works of art.
6) Edison's Last Breath at the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn
If you know anything about Henry Ford, you know that he was a bit of collector (OK, a LOT of a collector, as his museum is filled with stuff he acquired). But a test tube containing inventor Thomas Edison's last breath? Wow.
5) Hamtramck Disneyland
This two-story folk-art piece is made up of found objects and is a wildly popular, if not hidden, attraction in Hamtramck.
4) American Museum of Magic, Mason
In the Marshall home of Bob Lund is where you'll find a gigantic collection of magical artifacts, including a skull that levitates, vintage posters and a guillotine. Talk about freak show.
3) Nun Doll Museum at the Cross in the Woods, Indian River
Visit the Nun Doll Museum at the Cross in the Woods, where you'll witness the country's largest collection of dolls dressed as Catholic nuns. They range from life-sized mannequins to tiny habit-wearing ones, all staring you in the soul. Not. creepy. At. All.
2) Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, Farmington Hills
Ever wonder what happens to those old coin-operated games and machines when they're no longer being used? Chances are good that they might end up here. You'll come across aisles upon aisles of pinball machines, video games and mechanical fortune tellers. Better bring a pocket full of quarters.
1) Spirit of the Woods Museum, Williamsburg
Because getting up close personal with stuffed, dead little critters is fun, right? Right? Pictured here, the albino animal display.
