I found this on one of the other boards I frequent. I thought it was pretty cool.

Vent Haven is fascinating, all those familiar ventriloquism dummies like Charlie McCarthy, Howdy Doody and lots more staring at you. Worth a side trip but you have to call to get in, no regular hours. Many of the others like the salt and pepper museum have regular hours. Wacky but fun.

I love looking around this site!

I've been to almost all the Missouri things listed.  I've noticed quite a few errors but oh well, that's me being picky.

This is a place I wanted to take you all when we had the rally in Missouri.  It was just a little to far away to do on twisty fun roads.    The entire area around the church is awesome!

Glad to see Terra Studios on there.  I've been there before, and am planning on stopping again in a couple weeks.

Geez, I could spend days on that website.  It is awesome. 
I used to carry a little notebook on my bike.  Anytime I would run into someone that told me about a place like those on the website, I would write it down.  Then when I was on the road I would open the note book to see what was interesting in that area.
Roadside America is also a good website.

This is one of my all time favorite museum. It's just around the corner from where I generally park my bike in Philly.

The Mutter Museum of medical oddities. The have archived parts of Enstein's brain, the bones of conjoined twins, and a wide wall full of drawers. Each drawer contains items people died from swallowing.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

OH sign me up, I want to spend a day there.
I just remembered a good museum to stop at  - Clarksville TN - Customs house.  The museum is ok, mostly history of Clarksville are - mildly interesting.  The great part is in the basement there are four mini museums.  The three I remember are the tobacco museum, dental museum and medical museum.  I love that they would have a tobacco museum. That would never fly in the north.  Medical museum had tools and leeches and fun stuff.  I skipped the dental museum.  I'm a wussy with dental stuff, didn't want nightmares.

Maxi-Scoot Rally 2016

FYI there is a place in WI in Green County between Dodgeville and Spring Green.  It is called The House On The Rock.  I have been ther twice. Interesting architecture. Lots of added on buildings each dedicated to a specific item.  It can be a stop on the way to the Rally if anyone is interested.  Plan to spend some time there. It is not cheap. 

Not sure how to post a link.  houseontherock.com giving it a try.
