We sure do! And our November jaunt to Virginia was filled with them.
For example, we made a detour to the Missouri Veterinary Medical Foundation Museum in Jefferson City. If you love animals and are just a bit curious about veterinary medicine, this is a stop worth making. For the price of a donation of your choice, you can see rare and unusual objects of veterinary medicine like:
Weird objects extracted from animals, like the largest hairball ever found in an animal’s stomach
The growth pattern of a calf fetus
And Siamese piglets
The vet museum is a rare opportunity to get a firsthand glimpse at how far animal medicine has come. See the wooden table in the picture below? Until recently, veterinarians performed major surgeries on tables just like this, without anesthesia or sterile conditions.
If you’re anywhere in the vicinity, this pet-friendly attraction is worth a stop. I encourage you to go in your toad, however, since the tiny parking lot barely had room for our compact rig.
When you’re looking for oddball roadside attractions, be sure to check out Roadside America. We constantly use it to find unusual tourist attractions to visit during our travels.
