    They say everything is bigger in Texas, sometimes it is stranger as well. As one of the largest states in the U.S. there is plenty of room to hide the crazy but sometimes that is where you can find the excitement.  If strange is your thing then we’ve got just the list for you. Below you will find the strangest spots in the Lone Star state. 

    The Big Texan
    Located in Canyon, TX the 47 ft tall slouching cowboy was constructed out of cement and steel to add on to a local store way back in 1959. Though he is looking a little shabby these days a non-profit has been created to help restore the local artifact back to its previous glory. 

    Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
    The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame is dedicated to honoring women of the American West who have displayed extraordinary courage and pioneering fortitude. Since its as established in 1975, the Museum is an educational resource with exhibits, a research library, rare photography collection and annually adds Honorees to its Hall of Fame.

    As of 2013, there are over 200 Cowgirl Hall of Fame honorees, with additional women being added annually. Honorees include women from a variety of fields, including pioneers, artists, businesswomen, educators, ranchers and rodeo cowgirls.

    Barney Smith’s Toilet Seat Art Museum
    A retired master plumber, Barney Smith took his love of trophies and toilets and merged the two together into one of the most unique museum’s in the country. Though the site is quite popular visitors must first call ahead to make an appointment for a viewing. The entire site is a monument to one man’s love of his work and well worth a trip. 

    Museum of Weird
    Some people don’t realize that their site might be considered weird, others just come out and say it. The Museum of Weird in Austin, TX embraces its love of the weird and goes for broke. Located within the Lucky Lizard curio shop the museum feels like something that P.T. Barnum would have enjoyed in his prime. Their collection includes a two-headed calf, a 3,000 year old mummy and a replica skull of Bigfoot. 

    Beer Can House
    Do you like beer? If you said yes then The Beer Can House in Houston, TX is probably for you. Created over 13 years the house is currently constructed with more than 39,000 can all drunk by functioning alcoholic and artist John Milkovisch when he first began its construction in 1968. It took a rigorous six-pack a day regiment to complete the house but now it stands for all to see.
