The Travel Channel has a fun slide show featuring a list of the World’s Wackiest Museums.
I am not a huge museum fan but do enjoy visiting odd, quirky and not so typical museums.
Here is Travel Channel’s List of World’s Wackiest Museums:
  1. Burlingame Pez Museum- San Francisco, CA
  2. Southern Food & Beverage Museum- New Orleans, LA
  3. The International UFO Museum & Research Center- Roswell, NM
  4. Museum of Sex- NYC
  5. Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum- Japan
  6. Museum of Bad Art- Boston, MA
  7. Giant Shoe Museum- Seattle, WA
  8. Sulabh International Museum of Toilets- New Delhi
  9. The Collection of Questionable Medical Devices- In the Science Museum of Minnestota
  10. The Fan Museum- London
  11. National Mustard Museum- Middleton, WI
  12. Kansas Barbed Wire Museum- La Crosse, KS
  13. Chicken Art Museum- Seoul, South Korea
I’ve only visited one museum from the list- The Museum of Sex, kind of odd but I wouldn’t call it one of the world’s wackiest. I’d like to check out some of the other museums like the Pez Museum, Ramen Museum (which I wrote about: Odd Museums: Museums Dedicated to Ramen Noodles) and the Museum of Bad Art.
The Kansas Barbed Wire Museum sounds like the most ridiculous museum  listed.
There is one museum that I’ve visited that I think deserves a spot on this list- The Friet Museum in Belgium. The museum is all about french fries. Check out my post  Not Your Usual Museum: Friet Museum.
