  • Quirky museums abound in the Bay State - News Local Massachusetts - Boston.com

    Massachusetts is home to many museums, many of which are devoted to subjects that stretch beyond the standard topics of history and art. We have a museum devoted entirely to golf. There are institutions dedicated to plumbing, printing, quilts, paper, and pirates. You can even find exhibitions of burnt food, airsickness bags, and Tom Thumb memorabilia.
