Stiffy Green the Bulldog

Tried to visit this museum and it's still closed. A sign in the window said it was supposed to be open in July. Hmmm....

Unexpected delays can often push "projected" opening dates into the foggy future. The Museum is now saying it will open sometime this summer.

Stiffy is currently moving to his new home. The museum has a new location on Wabash Ave. Should be open by the end of June 2019.

I took my 15-year old daughter to visit Stiffy during a road trip, and personally, I think you ought to put a spoiler alert on this page! The description of Stiffy at the museum leaves it up to the visitor to decide whether or not they think Stiffy is a real dog, and where he is located he cannot be touched. Since the joy of Roadside America is the whimsy of it all, I would prefer that Stiffy remain a mystery.

PS...when my daughter, who has visited MANY roadside attractions with me, read the story of Stiffy that's posted at the museum, she loudly exclaimed, "Oh! This is the worst thing you've ever taken me to!" It made my day!
