Travel Planning: Offbeat Museums

Since turning 40, it seems like I have become highly sensitive about squeezing all the fun out of each day. There aren’t lots of things that I really want. Sure, “stuff” is nice but it doesn’t usually set my heart on fire. My daydreams are filled with colorful imaginings of traveling on my motorcycle or some deeper human connection. Maybe that’s why I am constantly stuffing my brain full of beautiful, interesting or curious destinations.

A few weeks ago, I picked up a copy of “Offbeat Museums” by Saul Rubin.  You know, just ‘cuz. On an unassuming Wednesday, just like any other humdrum humpday, I discovered that there is a Toilet Seat Art Museum.

That’s right. Toilet. Seat. Art. Museum. 

I’m not really sure how I moved through my life for all these years without knowing such a place existed.

Do you stop in to small museums when you’re traveling? Have you been to the toilet seat art nirvana?

  1. Never had the pleasure of visiting the toilet seat museum. Not sure how offbeat they are, but the Mutter Museum (medical specimens/oddities) in Philly and the Spy Museum in D.C. are very cool.

      Mutter is in that book – and it looks verrrrrry interesting. I just saw it on Mysteries at the Museum a few weeks back, too.

      My daughter Chloe loved the Spy Museum.
