Spend five minutes watching any American 24-hour news channel and you’ll find that the U.S. is a pretty odd place—and Americans are an odd batch of characters. But we’re also an insatiably curious people, with a shared fascination with all things novel and bizarre.

That may be why so many of the country’s museums gather thematically linked bizarre items together and put them on display. There are hundreds of such museums throughout the country, but these eight provide a strange sampling of what the U.S. has to offer.
