Museum of the Weird
Dime store museums have a long and rich history dating back to the days of P.T. Barnum, but they are now a rare and endangered species. That is what makes Austin’s Museum of the Weird such a great hidden gem. You will find such oddities and curiosities on display as the feejee mermaid, a cyclops pig, shrunken heads, mummies, and even “The Minnesota Iceman.” It’s a location that should not be missed.
Cathedral of Junk
If you are looking for unique art projects, you must see the ongoing, long-term art project created by Vince Hannemann in South Austin. Since 1989, he has been collecting junk for the project, and now it towers at over three stories. The structure continues to evolve and change, and you can see it for only $5. Be sure to make an appointment, though, or you could find yourself in the chair of despair.
The Harry Ransom Center
For the rare book lover among you, it would be worth your time to make a stop at the Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. There are more than 36 million literary manuscripts, 1 million rare books, 5 million photographs, and over 100,000 pieces of art. You can even get a glimpse of a rare Gutenberg Bible and the world’s oldest surviving photograph! The rarities and artifacts housed in the Center will keep you entertained and entranced for hours.
Ever wondered what makes Austin weird? Well, the Curia Arcanum is one of the best examples of how and why Austin is “weird”! You can find curious artwork, taxidermied animals (real and mythical), and other fun oddities. It’s an eclectic shop that should not be missed.
