4 Paranormal and Other Strange Roadside Attractions

2. UCM Museum: Abita Springs, Louisiana

The UCM Museum in Abita Springs, Louisiana, has everything you could ever hope for if kitsch is what you seek.
Publications International, Ltd.

A labor of love for artist John Preble, the UCM Museum (pronounced "you-see-'em museum) is "Louisiana's most eccentric museum," and that is a serious understatement.

The consummate roadside attraction opened in 2000 and features everything from the "House of Shards," bejeweled with chunks of shattered pottery, to "Aliens Trashed Our Airstream Trailer," a mobil home impaled by a flying saucer.

Elsewhere, the museum houses Buford the Bassigator, a collection of pocket combs and paint-by-number masterworks, a shrine to Elvis, and a miniature river town.
