Trap History Museum: Animal Traps

This is a very cool and quirky stop owned and run by Mr. Tom Parr. He came out after-hours when I pulled up for a peek at the giant trap outside the museum. He was so nice and accommodating to give me the tour and answer tons of questions. His Mouse Trap collection was featured on an episode of TV's Modern Marvels.
