Many monasteries have odd museums. I guess it's an old tradition that whenever someone in the area found something odd, they donated it to the nearest monastery. My brother-in-law was a monk at Mt. Angel Monastery in Oregon for some years, and took us to see the very unusual collection of oddities they have on display there.
I recall visiting a museum for ballooning in Mitchel, South Dakota. Right down the street was a doll museum, and nearby was the Corn Palace, an entire auditorium made of corn. It's a happening place, Mitchell. On the same trip, we visited Wall Drug, one of the most unusual museums in America, full of all sorts of odd junk.
