Hall of gourds.

The Gourd Museum

The Gourd Place now also carries gourd imprint pottery! The owner is so nice and opened for us after we called from parking lot. A must-see, cool, off-the-beaten path stop.

Gourd masks.

The Gourd Museum

This was an interesting gourd museum and store. They have gourd masks you can try on, and plates and utensils made out of gourds you can buy.

Feb. 2012: Photo added. Sept. 2005: Not to be confused with the former Marvin Johnson Gourd Museum in North Carolina. This place is affiliated with a gourd art retail business named The Gourd Place. On their web site we didn't notice any "Last Supper" in gourd seeds or equivalent....
