Really cool collection. My 11 year old daughter was baffled by the fact that we were allowed to get the key from the local gas station and browse unattended. City girl!

The museum's current owner also runs the gas station around the corner; check there first for the key if the museum isn't already open.

Very cool. Giant collection. Gas station had the key to clown museum.

Also cool things in that town down the street: a little wooden shed that is so wind-blown sideways it looks really neat, and there is a house that is just a roof, with maybe a yard high of wall under it with some windows on someone's property. Interesting. We wondered if there was an underground part to that or not.
