Wacky Museums: If You Collect It, They Will Come

What happens when a personal collection outgrows its simple beginnings? Some morph into museums that continue to reflect the public's infatuation with specific — often quirky — items.Once an idea catches on, either because it's unusual, nostalgic or just plain wacky, there's no stopping it.

My article in NowU, “Unusual Museums with Their Own Kind of Charm,” profiles three such museums: National Mustard Museum in Middleton, Wisconsin; Oz Museum in Wamego, Kansas; and Museum of Bad Art near Boston, Massachusettes.
