6 Peculiar Museums in the United States

Sing Sing Prison Museum, Ossining, New York

The 2,000-plus inmates that call Sing Sing Prison home may not think it's worth celebrating, but a museum down the street does just that. Sing Sing Prison Museum houses a variety of artifacts from the town of Ossining and Sing Sing itself. A re-creation of two cell blocks and a replica electric chair are among the highlights, along with a display of confiscated prison weapons.
