Klown Doll Museum

Well worth going out of your way. They don't seem to have regular hours and instead they have a sign posted on the door asking you to call someone to let you in. We didn't know this but got lucky when one of the key-keepers happened to drive by and asked if we wanted in. She couldn't have been sweeter or more friendly.

This insane collection is almost too overwhelming and you can't possibly look at all 7,000+ Klowns.

Plainview is the Klown Kapital (K spelling their's) of Nebraska, I dare to say of America and the world. They have a thorough if not creepy museum to prove it. It's a wacky town all around, complete with old an fashioned store that you can buy toys from the 50's from and a sweet bowling alley. Aside from that, they have a crazy fascination with some "Klown" band and honor it with a annual parade.
