If you venture to Austin, TX, Museum of the Weird is a must-see! I spent hours walking through this small, but engaging collection of monsters, memorabilia and big foot displays. Being a fan of sideshow art, I was immediately drawn in by PT Barnum posters and collectibles. I mean how often do you get to see the Fiji mermaid?
However the piece de resistance is the Minnesota Iceman. I could not take photos of this prehistoric freak of nature who garnered interest of the public as a carnival attraction and then by scientists at the Smithsonian. As interesting as it was, I am still not sold on the authenticity.
Enjoy these photos and add Museum of the Weird to your itinerary of weird travels.
