You might have some odd things tucked away in your basement or attic. Just can't part with that black velvet Elvis painting, right?
But you probably can't top Omaha's Durham Museum. The Durham has more than 40,000 objects in its collection, and plenty qualify as quirky, wild or just plain strange. Bet you don't have a Victorian-era wreath made from human hair. What about a 2-foot-tall eagle constructed from Butter-Nut coffee cans?
