ODD WISCONSIN Exhibit opens at Wisconsin Historical Museum 10/3/08



Just in time for Halloween, the Odd Wisconsin Exhibit opens at the Wisconsin Historical Museum in Madison, Wisconsin.


"WARNING! Objects Are More Intriguing Than They First Appear

How did a rock, a plastic pink flamingo, a few strips of aluminum make history?
Why did a family collect skunk oil in a jar?
How did a Wisconsin Congressman come to possess a 7-foot-long bowie knife?

From séances and college pranks to assassinations and the fight for civil rights, Odd Wisconsin features scores of curious and authentic artifacts, documents, and images which may surprise, perplex, and astonish you. Odd Wisconsin...satisfy your curiosity. This exhibit is a new long-term, ongoing exhibit." - from the website of the Wisconsin Historical Museum

The exhibit was written up in today's Wisconsin State Journal. You can read the complete article here:
