The coolest, strangest and downright oddest museums in the world.

As this is the first post, I figured I’d start out with something a little kooky, a little out there. And in a conversation I was having with some friends at work last night, we started talking about the weirdest museums we’ve heard of and been. Now, I can’t say I’ve been to some of the weirdest, but as for coolest, yeah, I’d say the Northwoods Children’s Museum in Eagle River, Wi. is near the top.

So, here are some of my favorites/craziest I’ve found so far:

The Sulabh International Museum of Toilets: New Dehli, India.

Isn’t every world traveler’s dream to reach the beautiful, majestic country of India … and go to the toilet museum? The Sulabh is the creation of Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, who apparently had a dream to catalog the history and evolution of the toilet, which, in his eloquent words “is a part of the history of human hygiene which is a critical chapter in the growth of civilization.” I think we can all agree — this man knows toilets.

What you’ll find

Why, hello there,

My name is Kevin, this is my creation and I stay will true to its nature, as it is a web log, or blog for those who don’t have the time. Which brings me to my next point. As many have said before me and many will say plenty more times, people these days move too fast, they don’t have time to appreciate everything that’s going on around them, everything that’s available. If you’re reading this, then it’s highly likely you’re on some sort of computer, and that means you’re blessed. So, first, take a step back and think about how lucky you are to be reading this, not because its great (but let’s be honest, it is), but because solely with this computer you have so much more than others will ever know. So calm down, stop pulling your hair out, and spend a couple minutes with me here where I’ll bring anything and everything to you that makes me smile. Now, this is just the beginning, so I have no idea what that could mean, but I imagine stunning photos and stellar cheese-filled burgers will be a good starting point. If only for five minutes, take a break from your day, and see if I can’t make it a little better. Just remember, you’re lucky, so make sure you stop and appreciate what you have, and how things could be worse. This is the stuff that makes me happy, and it’s my wish it will do the same for you.

Thanks, and have a great day. And I’m not just saying that because I’m a Minnesotan…well, maybe those two are related, but anyways, you know…have a great day)
