American Dime Museum

This museum's name was a bit misleading. The museum wasn't focused on the 10 cent piece, but rather side shows and freak shows (that used to cost 10 cents admission). The museum specialized in honoring the truly bizarre. What else would you expect from a museum that had John Waters on its advisory board?

The museum closed in 2007 and its collection sold at auction. I wonder who bid for Abraham Lincoln's Last Bowel Movement?
