Hoaxes have
inspired some of the kitschiest roadside attractions. Well, here’s a museum
that takes them on, decoding hundreds of hoaxes and urban legends under one
roof. It features a historical wing, a gallery of April Fool’s Day hoaxes, and
a Tall-Tale Creature Gallery. (No, the jackalope is not a real animal.) You can
even take a test before touring the museum to determine how gullible you truly
are. —Jessica Adamiak
