Montgomery, Minnesota: Big Honza's Museum of Unnatural History (Closed)

Big Honza's Museum of Unnatural History

Minnesota's Newest Legend - Big Honza Giganticzech! The free museum is filled with unnatural attractions that will tickle your funny bone. This self-guided tour is rated PG for families.

Although we've added a humorous touch to this Czech character, the rich history of Montgomery goes back to 1856, when an influx of Czech immigrants settled in the area known as the "Big Woods" (Montgomery).

The humor continues throughout the adjacent eatery. Open for breakfast and lunch, the quaint restaurant features homemade food, desserts, and frozen custard.

There's something appealing about Big Honza's disproportionately shriveled right arm -- useful only for pointing at his shoulder.
