Google said it was open. Website gives no info on calendar. Email request for info not answered. Phone goes to voicemail. No posted hours at the place. Luckily I was in the area and it was only a mile or two out of my way.

Main Street Museum is certainly different. It's inclusive and hip vibe helps visitors relax and explore the unusual and cool permanent collection. They usually also have a rotating exhibition of local, regional and also international visual artists on display. They hosts numerous events, such as...More

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.

Funky, cool, eclectic. Interesting personal collection of mixed bag of flea markst, ironic ephemera, fake science and art

This small museum is chock full of weird displays, rotating art installations, drawers to open, and about a million other things to poke through. There is a an open mic night once a month on the first Wednesday with surprisingly good performances. Totally worth the...More

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
