Join us as we visit little-known museums with the most unusual or oddly specific collections, from Soviet missiles to insane-asylum mummies and beyond.
The Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum
Join us in Washington, D.C., as we tour the office where Clara Barton and her colleagues helped discover the fates of thousands of Civil War soldiers. After the office closed, the building's significance was lost in time until a contractor noticed an envelope poking through a ceiling more than 100 years later.
The Appalachian Trail Museum
We take a walk in the woods to visit the Appalachian Trail Museum in Pennsylvania's Pine Grove Furnace State Park. Join us as we hear Grandma Gatewood's legendary story, learn what to do if you run into a bear, and "hike" the entire AT.
The King Barn Dairy Mooseum
We visit the moo-tiful people at a dairy heritage museum in Boyds, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. At the King Barn Dairy Mooseum, kids "milk" a cow, we learn about the hottest bull in the bovine world and more.
The Michigan Whitetail Hall of Fame Museum
Like deer? How about deer, chainsaws and antique farming equipment? We explore them all -- and get up close and personal with Bambi's cousins -- at the Michigan Whitetail Hall of Fame Museum.
The Didusch Center for Urologic History
If you've ever wanted to see a 10-pound kidney stone or learn what a "prostate punch" is, urine luck! We're visiting the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History in Maryland.
Episode 2: The Barbour County Historical Museum
We visit the Barbour County Historical Museum in Philippi, West Virginia. The big draw? 1880s-era mummies from a local asylum.
I love museums and odd finds. This podcast takes me to places I might never see and never mocks the place or people involved. I appreciate the pacing of each episode and can "see" things through the descriptions and sounds.
Excellent! Quirky, interesting, and entertaining. Keep them coming!
Full disclosure, I'm a friend of the podcaster. But even with that being said, I've found the first three episodes really interesting. Emily manages to tease out these fascinating stories and tidbits of information. It's like you really are touring the museum with her, but you can skip straight to the cool stuff. You'll be surprised how much you learn!
