We’ve all heard of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Smithsonian Museums in Washington D.C. and the Louvre in Paris – but there are plenty of museums that don’t gain international recognition, and they might just be worth a visit.

There’s a Newseum, a MOOseum, and two Brewseums. There’s a Museum of Death, a Museum of Broken Relationships and a Museum of Ice Cream. There’s even a Museum of Bad Art if you want to feel a little better about your own artistic capabilities.

What is the most specific or strange museum you’ve ever been to? Which museum is your favorite? And are there any you’ve heard of that you’re dying to visit? Call us at 866-893-5722.
