  • Museum of Osteology
    In 1972, when most other 7-year-olds were building their baseball-card and bottle-cap collections, Jay Villemarette began collecting skulls. His lifetime hobby evolved into a full-time vocation in 1990 after he opened Skulls Unlimited, a one-of-a-kind bone-replica shop that earned the limelight on popular TV shows such as Dirty Jobs and Ripley's Believe It or Not!. By 2010, Jay's widespread success led him to establish the Museum of Osteology, which currently houses the largest privately held collection of osteological specimens in the world, with more than 300 skeletons and, most importantly, zero zombie sightings to date. Education abounds throughout the 7,000-square-foot space as visitors investigate rare species, skulls, and skeletons from all corners of the world. The form and function of the skeletal system weave a common thread through each of the museum's exhibits, which showcase topics such as adaptation, locomotion, and specific categories of animals, including marsupials, birds, and reptiles. After exploring displays and begging skeletons for their teeth-whitening regimen, interim osteologists can visit the gift shop, where souvenirs, toys, and replicas of museum models are available to start personal collections.

Bring G-rated pioneer fantasies to life with an educational romp around the Homestead's seven historic buildings. Visit a one-room schoolhouse, tour the graceful Victorian dwelling, or pack a picnic to enjoy on the grassy promenade.

  • American Banjo Museum
    Two floors spanning 21,000 square feet exhibit the American Banjo Museum's more than 300 shiny string-boxes and other instruments, providing tune-lovers and armchair folklorists with a rich history of American music. Every era of banjo evolution is represented with corresponding displays on the first floor, from its beginnings among slaves in the 17th century, to its ornate four-string iterations in the Jazz Age, to its proliferation among street-prophets as a dowsing-rod for buried sandwiches. Head to the special gallery to scope the pristine collection of Gibson Mastertone banjos, including an extremely rare pre-war five-stringer valued at more than $175,000, or learn about the luminaries of the plectrum at the Banjo Hall of Fame.
