Visitor Tips and News About Marvin Carr's One of a Kind in the World Museum (Gone)
He wasn't open until 1 pm, but we got there early (around 12:30 pm) and Marvin took us in anyway and gave us the tour. He is the nicest man and really likes to make you laugh. He is very knowledgable about everything in his collection. No matter what you're into, there will be something there that will amaze you. Personally, I'm a taxidermy fan and I was blown away by his stuff. Definitely stop here if you are in the area![Juice, 12/28/2012]
Visited here just shy of 3 pm on a Sunday this summer. The museum is only open until 3 on Sundays. However, seeing as we had come all the way from New York, Marvin invited us in and gave us the full tour anyway. Very cool! Marvin is the best part of the museum![divetrash, 11/11/2011]
This guy and his collections are amazing. Only took us 5 years of living here to find out this man and his treasures were here. Definitely worth a trip. We're going back again soon.[cdavid, 04/20/2011]
An eclectic collection of vintage cars, antique furniture, smoking paraphernalia, kooky stulptures, a Chinese junk made from 27,500 matchsticks, and other intriguing items. Marvin Carr usually gives the tours himself. Fun.[Chris Wilson, 08/06/2006]
