If you want to tour an unorthodox if not eccentric museum in the state of Vermont, then you might want to pay the Main Street Museum a visit. Located in White River Junction, Vermont, this eclectic museum was founded in 1992. The museum was originally conceived as an ?alternative? museum, which aimed to create a display space for material culture and experiments in new taxonomy.

Inspired by 18th century ?cabinet of curiosities?, the museum?s seemingly random and unfocused collections are one of its charms, giving the institution an eclectic and nontraditional museum ambience. The museum?s weird collections are very diverse. The categories are: significant objects around the world; evidence of tramps; Round Things; flora; biological anomalies; Elvis impersonators; Tangled Things; electromagnetic devices; flora; and fauna.
The museum is also notable for its usage of modern technology, particularly the internet. The museum has an online catalogue and its own ?wiki? page.
