3271 Main St., Vancouver, British Columbia V5V 3M6, Canada

Straight out of National Geographic--or Ripley's Believe It or Not--this kooky collection of travel mementos occupies a back room at a Main Street antique shop. Eccentric world travelers, Harold and Barbara Morgan, first displayed their mother lode of exotic souvenirs in a room on-site at their Vancouver painting business. Purchased by antiquer Alexander Lamb upon Harold Morgan's death, their voluminous collection is now on display in its new location at Lamb's antique store  Expect stuffed alligators, carved wooden masks, and dessicated insects along with spears, maps, postcards, and enough jaw-dropping tribal photography to keep you occupied for months.
