Arizona Hosts the World's Smallest Museum

Arizona Hosts the World’s Smallest Museum

Arizona is home to some truly unique museums, like the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson and the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. However, the state also boasts a delightful curiosity that has been dubbed “The World’s Smallest Museum.” To visit this museum, one must head to the quaint town of Superior, Arizona. The name of the town adds a touch of irony to this record-holding spot.

If you’re traveling along Highway US-60 and passing through Superior, a small town with a population of fewer than 2,500 people, you might miss the museum if you blink. Despite its tiny stature, the Buckboard Café building next to it is considerably larger.

You might think, “There’s no way that’s a museum.” But it is indeed there. What was once a simple Tuff Shed of 134 square feet was transformed into a museum by Dan Wight and Jake Reaney in the mid-1990s.

So, what can you find inside The World’s Smallest Museum? It’s a nostalgic trip through American history. The collection includes old snack packaging, a computer from the 80s, a letter addressed to former president John F. Kennedy, and even “The World’s Largest Pear.” One of the most fascinating aspects is the unique design of the roof.

This little museum stands out as one of the most unique roadside attractions in Arizona. If you want to experience The World’s Smallest Museum, you can find it at 1111 US-60, Superior, AZ 85173.
