Give your kids a taste of U.S. history in Washington, D.C., especially beautiful this time of year with cherry blossom trees abloom. With countless history, science and art museums, famous monuments, open green spaces, great restaurants and festivals, you could easily spend a week seeing the sights and taking in all the city has to offer.

Destinations / North America

Skip the art or natural history museum the next time you’re traveling. Instead, check out one of these museums dedicated to something a little more out of the ordinary.

 

J’s Tea-Rific Teapot Museum

This South Carolina museum celebrates all things teapots, with an extensive collection of more than 5,000. One of the most striking is a 20-foot teapot you can walk inside. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to catch high tea service during your visit.

 

American International Rattlesnake Museum

It’s pretty normal to feel a bit squeamish at the mention of a museum filled with rattlesnakes, but this museum’s purpose is to help you avoid that squeamish feeling. The American International Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque aims to rebut common misconceptions about snakes and their dangers, with its large collection of not only snake memorabilia, but also the largest collection of live rattlesnakes in the world.

 

International Cryptozoology Museum

Whether you believe or not, you won’t be able to deny the International Cryptozoology Museum is worth a visit. The Portland, Maine, museum focuses on all those creatures we’re not quite sure exist (depending on who you ask), from Big Foot to the Loch Ness Monster.

 

Bata Shoe Museum

Explore the history and culture of shoes at Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. Some of the museum’s artifacts include shoes worn by well-known figures throughout time, including Queen Victoria and John Lennon.

 

The Museum of Miniature Houses

Lastly, explore all things miniature at this Indiana museum dedicated to tiny houses. From individual tiny items to fully furnished homes, the museum has it all on display. You can even take home a furnished house of your own, or a kit to build your own miniature.

How to Eat Like a Local with OodyMate

Truly immersing yourself in a foreign culture is one of the main reasons to travel, whether you’re learning a local dance or sipping wine with a vineyard owner in Italy. Traveling outside your comfort zone also involves sampling local cuisine, but if you’re visiting a major city like Rome or Paris, eating like a local usually means stepping far out of the city center, where eateries tend to cater to unadventurous tourists. But finding a worthy eatery can hog hours of your trip time as you pore over listings on TripAdvisor or Yelp.
