26 Weird And Quirky Museums To Visit On The Ultimate American Road Trip Adventure
Given the right amount of weird, the best part of a road trip can be the unexpected roadside attraction along the way to your final destination. But instead of leaving that enjoyable detour to chance, consider the possibilities if you made everything World Famous the purpose of the trip.
Here’s the ultimate American cross-country road trip put together by Mashable, featuring 26 weird museums, from an entire building devoted to bananas to the official Dolly Parton museum.
The route is as weird as the museums, and would cover almost the entire country from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon. Even if you don’t have the time to make the whole trip (and not many of us do), the itinerary can be split up depending on time and starting point.
Part 1: Maine to Illinois
The first leg of this epic weird museum road trip covers 2,413 miles. Estimated driving time: 39 hours, 16 minutes.
