There is also the Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen, Ohio. They own 900 different bikes but can only display 200 at a time. A local businessman bought the Schwinn family's collection several years ago.

Buffalo Bill Cody museum in Cody Wy. Amazing collection of memorabilia from the Bill Cody Wild West show that went all around the US and to Europe several times. And contemporary western art-not all cowboy stuff, but lots -add a sculpture garden of western themed bronze pieces. Easy most of a day to see all that but there is also an amazing collection of guns grouped by era from blunderbusses to today. As a bonus it is just east of Yellowstone Park

The biggest logging museum is right across the road from Collier Memorial State Park, near Klamath Falls, OR. Another one is near La Pine, OR, the High Desert Museum. Then there's the Indian Museum in Warm Springs, OR. The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center near the Dalles, OR which features the Lewis and Clark expedition. Scotty's Castle in Death Valley, the guided tours are great.

I intend to visit the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix this winter.

It would appear that one will never run out of museums to visit.

One I need not to forget. In Brooks Oregon is Antique Power Land with it's 11 museums. They include, CAT, John Deer, Case, museums. Truck and antique car, a steam driven lumber mill (most of the buildings were made with lumber milled in steam mill). There's trolleys, a small gauge railroad. Steam tractors, 2 cycle club. It's all 1930's and older.

About 15 vintage units at a dealership. Free. Opened recently. No fiberglass eggs (yet).


Vermillion, South Dakota
National Music Museum.
It is the incredible collection of one man, thousands of unusual musical instruments. It is on the campus of the University of South Dakota.

The Heritage Museums in the Canadian prairie Provinces are awesome. Each is made up of a collection of buildings filled with artifacts from the past. We were even able to go through with our dog so that we didn't have to leave it in an overheated car. We did take turns touring an individual building so as to keep the dog outside. With high 90's heat that day we otherwise would have had to bypass this great exhibit. It pays to ask. Sometimes people are incredibly kind.

Yes, the Western Development Museum. Western Development Museum - Home.

The one in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan is focused on "History of Transportation". It includes many inventor or pioneer vehicles like an Air-Snow sled. (think swamp boat but for snow.). As well as early electric cars, trollies, trains etc.

It also contains a custom built travel trailer made post WW2, circa 1946. Using aircraft aluminum for the exterior and skills developed during the war. The interior was salvaged from bombed houses in England combined with skills as a furniture maker. This trailer was built by my grandfather and I had the pleasure of camping in it as a child.

Sadly, I have no pictures but if anyone else does please post!

If you're a classic car lover and had once toured the Harrah Car Collection... I'm talking the old one... not the new one, you'll love the LeMay Museum located in Tacoma, Washington.

Sweeeet!

If you are interested in race cars the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum in Indianapolis is a must see. While you're there, you can take a bus tour around the famed oval.
