We read reviews and dropped in for a look. It was a collection of kitschy stuff. Seemed to be very run down. You can put a donation in a box, other than that there was no-one around. Stuff everywhere.

We visited this little 1-2 room museum on the basis of some encouraging Trip reviews. At least the fee was $2 and voluntary. This place is not quirky, it is JUNK. JUNK. JUNK. Bird skeletons, plastic doll heads, a bunch of deer heads, a couple...More

Nothing like it. David Fairbanks Ford's personal collection of the odd and rare is a site to be seen! Venue for shows is a delight. Including a bonfire by the white river for the show. Wow. All museums could learn a thing or two!

Definitely woth a visit to see the many off items and collections on display. Admission is by suggested donation of $2 to $20 and you'll probably want to spent 30 to 60 minutes here. Glad we came by to see what they had.

Great expectations; greatly disappointed. A disjointed, random collection of junk. I suppose one person's junk is another person's museum. Dimly lit; hard to read display cards (which didn't seem to relate to the exhibit near by). Found a card for relics, but the Elvis nail...More

I can't say enough about this dark treasure of the valley. Even Elvis's toenails. Not kidding. Ever wonder what a 10 year old happy meal looks like? How about a thousand TNT shoes or a rabbit with wings...I could go on...But you have to see...More

This is a ONE OF A KIND museum. I have NEVER seen anything like it. Lots of strange and unique pieces. My friend and I were traveling back from Stowe and I went outta my way to stop here and glad we did. I just...More

If so this is the museum for you! It is a deliberately odd assortment of dioramas, taxidermy, history, and comedy somewhat like The Onion. It does indeed challenge the idea of what makes the things typically saved and displayed so special?
