scariest museum in the world
we stumbled on the super creepy museum of ventriloquist dummies

from the Ventriloquist Museum page on the Roadside America website…

Lisa Sweasy, the curator, is an energetic encyclopedia of ventriloquism facts and history, and she understands that one of her jobs is to be candid about dummy-phobia and to put visitors’ fears to rest. Her eyes flash, however, when she describes people who freak out in front of the dummies and insist, “They’re staring at me!”… “Why would someone like that come here?” she asks. “Ninety percent of ventriloquism is uplifting and funny and cute. Clowns are scarier.”

ah, sorry Lisa, we disagree. and will not be stopping by for the “once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity to sit in “an entire classroom of dummies assembled in school chairs”.
