Synopsis: The definitive guide to the most interesting, amusing, and surprising collections in America.

With listings that leave no source unexplored, this clever directory is the first in-depth popular guide to more than 1,000 small museums. Its listing of archives ranging from the utterly informal to the most diligently organized, labeled, and catalogued, from displays of celebrity shoes to the work of visionary artists, provides a picture of the American landscape that is rich in quirky details.

In Little Museums, you will find the listings that tourist literature does not provide, including the Barbie Hall of Fame in Palo Alto, California, the Dog Mushing Museum in Fairbanks, Alaska; the Museum of Ordinary People in Hurtsboro, Alabama; the 24Hour Church of Elvis in Portland, Arizona; and the last freak show left in America--at Coney Island's Sideshows by the Seashore. A virtual museums listing means you don't even have to leave home to visit a little museum, and a category index makes finding museums devoted to your favorite subjects even easier. Little Museums is for anyone who hates to miss a unique opportunity along the byways and urban centers of America.

Review: Forget about your Picassos and Cézannes. What you really need to know is where the Mustard Museum is (answer: Mount Horeb, Wisconsin--displaying some 1,700 kinds of mustard) or the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices (downtown Minneapolis). Thanks to the research of Lynne Arany and Archie Hobson, the country's bizarre and obscure museums--including the Barbie Hall of Fame and the Goodyear World of Rubber collections--are collected in one magnificent, if somewhat strange, volume. It canvasses the back roads and major highways of the U.S., is organized alphabetically by state, and includes an index by category as well as an index to virtual museum Web sites. Useful for the traveler who wants an alternative to the main drag or seeks destination inspiration, Little Museums provides good perusal fodder and armchair travel as well. --Stephanie Gold
