These are familiar institutions that you may have visited, considered visiting, or heard of in passing.
While these landmarks are popular for a reason, there are tens of thousands of other museums across the U.S. that many people are not as familiar with.
And that’s a shame, since these off-the-wall stops consist of enriching, unique exhibits that may convert even the most stubborn of museum doubters.
