International Museum Day

 Esquire offers information on some interesting museums appealing to men:

  • International Bowling Museum, St. Louis -- Explore 5,000 years of pin games, not to mention a serious collection of vintage bowling trophies, in this 50,000-square-foot space. You can also roll a few. Key artifact: Poster illustrating how bowling balls were used as weapons by Vikings.
  • Classic Car Museum, Sarasota, FL -- Four acres of land housing more than 125 cars: The RoboCop patrol car, the original Batmobile and the original Starsky & Hutch Ford Gran Torino have all rotated through. Key artifacts: John Lennon's 1965 Mercedes 230 SL and Sir Paul's Mini.
  • Hamburger Museum, Daytona Beach, FL -- While collector and curator Harry Sperl is of German descent, he is (sadly) not from the city of Hamburg. Nonetheless, he owns the world's biggest collection of hamburger related items, including banks, biscuit jars, clocks, hats, magnets, music boxes, slat and pepper shakers, stuffed toys, towels, and plenty of Hamburglar action figures. The museum is located in his house. Key artifacts: The hamburger waterbed and the hamburger motorcycle.
