Museum of the Weird

It definitely qualifies as a weird place. The Museum of the Weird is not that big, but is jam-packed with very strange items, including a self-described freak show.

[Jack Culek, 12/17/2018]

Monster movie figures from the owner's other (now closed) attraction were squeezed into the Museum of the Weird.

Museum of the Weird

In 2013, the Museum of the Weird acquired the legendary Minnesota Iceman, a hairy man-beast frozen in a block of ice that was toured around the US in the 1960s and '70s before it went missing for decades. It had even been featured on that TV show Unsolved Mysteries back in the '90s. This thing is creepy as heck, and is the ultimate roadside attraction!

Nicknamed "Bozo" by Ivan T. Sanderson.
