Odd Indiana

Well, yeah, this Indianapolis Observer knows that the Hoosier state is, ummmm, odd, but this is a horse of a different color.

An exhibit titled "Odd Indiana" opened today (4 September) in the Indiana State Museum in White River State Park, downtown Indianapolis, and runs through 12 February 2012.

Here's what the press release says: "Put on your history detective hat and get ready for a hair-raising experience investigating the baffling and amusing aspects of the Hoosier state. Odd Indiana features objects selected from the museum’s own collections that are oddities, rarities or commonplace things with intriguing stories. Over 50 unusual items that represent science and culture reveal the museum’s collecting activities over the past 100 plus years."

There's even an online quiz to get you in the mood. How many of these oddities can you identify?

I have been looking forward to this exhibit for a while. I love the odd places(and people) you can find when you travel!
