Worlds' Smallest Museum

An unusual roadside attraction dedicated to the artifacts of everyday life

North America is home to many unique and unusual museums. In Superior, Arizona you’ll find a roadside attraction called The World’s Smallest Museum.

Superior is approximately 60 miles east of Phoenix on U.S. 60. Superior is an old mining town. Just outside of town is Boyce Thompson Arboretum, which is what brought me into town.

The World’s Smallest Museum is dedicated to the artifacts of everyday life. Inside the 134 square foot building is one aisle with display cases on either side.

More artifacts can be found outside the building in what initially looks like a pile of junk. The outside pieces focus on the working man with particular emphasis on the miner. Sculptures have been created from the working man’s tools.

  1. Oh, wow, Donna! My husband would absolutely love this museum! Have you visited the Museums of Western Development in Western Canada? Several in SK and AB. They’re like this place only at least 10x larger!

  2. I love this Donna! I love how the US has so many unique tourist attractions! 🙂
