The Atlas Obscura website is something like a cabinet of curiosities for cabinets of curiosity… Collaboratively compiled links and articles document hundreds of sites, displays and museums that are both strange and wonderful. The list includes well-known as well as quite off-beat destinations. What is especially nice here is that once you discover one place or destination of interest, the website displays an area map showing you other “curiosities” that are in the same geographic area. Keyword tags further allow you to explore the website’s articles according to subject area.
