You can’t get much weirder than the Museum of Weird in Austin, Texas. It is self-titled “unusual, bizarre, and freaky,” according to its website. One the strangest museums you will ever go through, see the likes of zombies, mummies, the Fiji mermaid, shrunken heads, and the true story behind the museums “creature in ice.” This, plus more, awaits to astonish and amaze you with things you never thought you would find all wrapped up in one weird place.

The Cadillac Ranch, located in the Amarillo, Texas area at I-40 West at the Arnot Road exit, is an unusual sight to see. It’s considered an icon among attractions found along the Texas routes. According to tripsavvy.com, the 10 Cadillacs buried down into the ground hood first, are a creation of a group of artists out of California known as “Ant Farm.” “The 10 cars used were year models 1949, ’52, ’54, ’56, ’57, ’58, ’59, ’60, ’62, and ’64. These models were chosen to represent the evolution of the Cadillac’s signature tail fins.” The Cadillac Ranch gained, even more, notoriety and fame thanks to a Bruce Springsteen’s hit by the same name. Visitors come from all over just to see the magnificent and beautifully weird attraction that calls Texas home.

3. Munster Mansion

If you’re a fan of the Munsters, you will love this weird attraction found in Waxahachie, Texas. Founded in 2002, 1313 Mockingbird Lane was replicated and now the proud home and work of Sandra and Charles McKee, according to its website.

The tour of this home takes you through each room perfectly recreated to look like the 1960’s sitcom hit. “Many pieces in the house are from the show or exact matches of items from the show,” shares the website. The downside is this is not a year-round tourist attraction. The highlight of the year to see the mansion is on Halloween when the owners hold fundraisers benefitting local charities.
