WHAT'S HOT Anyone can add their favorite quirky exhibits and locales to this user-generated map of eccentric museums and pit stops. It's global, so you could plan a trip to Jaipur, India, around a visit to the Jantar Mantar, a collection of architectural astrological instruments, or travel to Arcachon, France, to see the tallest sand dune in Europe.
WHAT'S NOT The site is map-based, so clicking on pins and seeing what's there gets old quickly. It would be nice if you could navigate the great finds by category (even though there are a lot of science museums) to make trip planning more fun. Otherwise, you might never know that you could rent the same room at the Joshua Tree Inn where Gram Parsons died.
