Curiosities

The picture of the rib at the Miami Boat Show on another thread started me thinking of other peculiar things.

Has anyone been to both 'The Dog Collar Museum' and 'The House of Pipes'?
Extra points if you can identify the locations of these two unmissable attractions.

Well Ben, nice to hear my pumped up boat at welcome to Miami thread engaged the ole gray matter for you

must admit I'm not the best goooogler in the world but a swift dab at the keyboard had these little gems of interest turn up

http://www.london4seniors.com/html/d...ar_museum.html

http://www.houseofglasspipes.com/

not that I could say these places of high interest have featured allot for me but I'm sure many on this site will have been keen to try err ... the dog collar on museum with perhaps a pipe sticking out their mouth and I'm just assuming that's where the pipe goes

Yep, Leeds Castle is one them. We took our daughter there when she was about 6 years old. We put her in the maze but she kept finding us.

Didn't know there was a House of Pipes in the U.S. The one I was thinking about is in England and all roads lead to it or so says its brochure.
