“Home of the Minnesota Iceman!”
Take a guided tour and watch a live show! Shrunken heads, mermaids, and more! The Museum of the Weird takes seriously the, "Keep Austin Weird," mantra as pretty much every corner of this place has something strange in it.
Perhaps the most interesting display at the Museum of the Weird is the newly acquired body of the Minnesota Iceman, a legendary frozen "Bigfoot" that once toured the country in a frozen truck... only to disappear without a trace. It was displayed at shopping malls, state fairs, and carnivals in the United States and Canada in the 1960s and early 1970s and promoted as the "missing link" between man and Neanderthals.
Almost half a century later, the frozen body was discovered in a storage container and auctioned off on eBay of all places, and the proprietors of Austin's Museum of the Weird were the highest bidder.
Now, people can once again witness the shocking Minnesota Iceman for themselves. It's weird, so just come on down!
