MY FAVORITE NON-ART MUSEUMS

But then again, what is art? Inspired by @bjnovak
  1. Seattle's Pinball Museum
    Antique and modern machines displayed by date in a small, two-story building in Seattle's International District. For one price you can play all the machines as much as you like. The staff are terrific and knowledgeable. They also serve beer. 🍻http://www.seattlepinballmuseum.com/
  2. Tillamook Air Museum
    Housed in a WWII airship hangar in beautiful Tillamook, Oregon, this museum offers military aviation artifacts from engines and parts to actual planes. Medals, clothing, and wartime objects are also on display. It has a super gift shop, and it's just down the road from the Tillamook Cheese Factory!🧀🍦http://www.tillamookair.com
  3. Museum of Neon Art (MONA)
    Located it its new, permanent home in Glendale, California, MONA preserves the eye-popping signs that adorned liquor stores, doughnut shops, and car dealerships, as well as displays of neon art pieces. http://www.neonmona.org
  4. International Surfing Museum
    Huntington Beach is the home of surfers, beach culture, and the California music sound, and this museum offers displays of all. Surfboards, trophies, apparel, and music-related items are showcased. http://www.surfingmuseum.org
  5. Valley Relics Museum
    Located in Chatsworth, California, the museum offers a look at the history of the San Fernando Valley through exhibits of "vintage neon signs, classic cars, rare documents, photos, yearbooks, memorabilia, menus, art, clothing, vintage BMX bicycles, and more." They also sell super T-shirts on line. Extra special for those of us who grew up in the Valley but would be of interest to all. https://valleyrelicsmuseum.org/
  6. Suislaw Pioneer Museum
    Located in Florence, Oregon, the museum offers an extensive look into how people of centuries past lived, worked, and played on the Oregon Coast. The quality and number of artifacts is impressive! They cover the timber and fishing industries, as well as what would be found in homes, businesses, and schools. Clothing, photographs, appliances, tools, maps, and more—most all in super condition. http://www.siuslawpioneermuseum.com/
