Museum of Everyday Life

Tucked away in the hills of Glover, in the top of a barn, is The Museum of Everyday Life, with ever-changing exhibits to see. Its soundtrack is creaking boards, animals, and an occasional car passing by. It's self service. Turn on the lights, and enter at your own risk. Turn off the lights when you leave.

According to its website, the Museum exhibits "deteriorating objects of no monetary value, but of immense ordinary-life consequence."
