Austin has been a hub of historical and cultural events since the founding of Texas. When you want to indulge in the rich cultural history that is uniquely Austin, visit the Museum of the Weird in Austin Texas. In their own words “The Museum of the Weird is one of the last true dime museums in the United States.  Originally introduced to the mass public by P.T. Barnum in the 1800s, dime museums became popular forms of entertainment (and pseudo-education) around the late 19th to early 20th century and were also the birthplace of the sideshow.  The Museum of the Weird includes such curiosities as you might have found in one of those old dime museums — authentic freak animals, real mummies, Fiji mermaids, shrunken heads, and life-size wax figures of historic sideshow celebrities (including Barnum himself). These are just some of the many more oddities to peruse in our hallowed halls. The Museum also explores paranormal subject matter like local haunted places and the Texas Bigfoot.  We even have a classic movie monster Chamber of Horrors, including a life-sized King Kong you can have your photo taken with!”
