Harrisburg, South Dakota: Abby Normal's Museum of the Strange

The museum part isn't quite open yet, but the owner took pity on us because we came in from L.A. and gave us a tour anyway.

Abby Normal's Museum of the Strange

Abby Normal's Museum of the Strange has real two-headed animals, half a human head in a jar, real human skulls and skeletons, live American alligators, and a gift shop. They're just opening up. It's the strangest collection of odd and macabre in the Midwest!
